<p><b>A COMPANION TO THE U.S. CIVIL WAR</b> <p><i>A Companion to the U.S. Civil War</i>??presents a comprehensive historiographical collection of essays covering all major military, political, social, and economic aspects of the American Civil War (1861-1865). <p>Featuring contributions from more than 60 top historians and experts in Civil War scholarship, essays offer in-depth coverage of the major campaigns and battles, and military and political figures. Reflecting a recent shift toward social history, almost half of the chapters focus on non-military aspects of the conflict—examining such topics as gender, emancipation, literature, ethnicity, slavery, and memory. Unprecedented in its breadth of coverage and depth of scholarly analyses,??<i>A Companion to the U.S. Civil War</i>??is an invaluable addition to the body of Civil War scholarship that continues to shape our understanding of one of the most complex chapters in American history.
<p>"The literature on the American Civil War has grown to almost unimaginable proportion, leaving many readers and students frustrated as they try to engage with an enormously complex field. Aaron Sheehan-Dean and the contributors to this Companion have provided a most welcome tool that should find a large and grateful audience. Whether seeking information about thousands of titles or major historiographical trends, all who use these two volumes will profit immensely."<br /> <i>--Gary W. Gallagher, John L. Nau III Professor of History, University of Virginia</i></p> <p>“Aaron Sheehan-Dean’s <i>A Companion to the U.S. Civil War</i> immediately becomes the indispensable guide to this sprawling, and ever growing field of historical study. The contributors to this fine volume offer thoughtful and comprehensive assessments of a vast literature that will enlighten readers familiar with Civil War scholarship as well as providing an invaluable introduction for students. A most impressive achievement.”<br /> <i>--George C. Rable, Charles Summersell Chair in Southern History, University of Alabama</i></p>
