9780140125184: Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for History'Read it. It will open your eyes about race history in America. It will shock you for what it tells you about politics in America today.' Richard Ford'A remarkably wide-ranging synthesis of the history of the 1850s and the Civil War ... that effectively integrates in one volume social, political and military events from the immediate aftermath of the Mexican War through the sectional strife of the 1850s, the secession movement, and the Civil War ... It is a masterful work' New York Review of Books'Compellingly readable ... the best one-volume treatment of its subject I have ever come across. It may be the best ever published ... This is magic' The New York TimesThis book covers one of the most turbulent periods of the USA's history, from the Mexican War in 1848 to the end of the Civil War in 1865. With a broad historical sweep, it traces the heightening sectional conflict of the 1850s: the growing estrangement of the South and its impassioned defence of slavery; the formation of the Republican Party in the North, with its increasing opposition to slavery; and the struggle over territorial expansion, with its accompanying social tensions and economic expansion. The whole panorama of the Civil War is captured in these pages, from the military campaign, which is described with vividness, immediacy, a grasp of strategy and logistics, and a keen awareness of the military leaders and the common soldiers involved, to its political and social aspects.

Review:

Published in 1988 to universal acclaim, this single-volume treatment of the Civil War quickly became recognized as the new standard in its field. James M. McPherson, who won the Pulitzer Prize for this book, impressively combines a brisk writing style with an admirable thoroughness. He covers the military aspects of the war in all of the necessary detail, and also provides a helpful framework describing the complex economic, political, and social forces behind the conflict. Perhaps more than any other book, this one belongs on the bookshelf of every Civil War buff.

From the Publisher:

BATTLE CRY OF FREEDOM by James M. McPherson is the best single volume history of the American Civil War. McPherson first describes the economic, social, political, and technological changes that occurred in the United States in the years before the conflict. Then, he carefully and lucidly describes the political environment in America that leads to the election of Abraham Lincoln. This election precipitated the seccession of 7 and ultimately 11 southern states. The seccession debate within the southern governments is explained fully. The war itself is described primarily in strategic terms, but with clear descriptions of the human costs of the conflict.
Anyone who wishes to understand this period of American history must read BATTLE CRY OF FREEDOM.
