Calhoun-give the reader a vivid, authoritative overview of the political, cultural, and economic currents that swept the nation toward a bloody civil war. The Causes of the Civil War has been a perennial sourcebook for historians and lay readers alike since 1959. This edition is the most complete ever, with prominent historians such as Michael F.
