160 pages. Softcover. Brand new book. UNITED STATES HISTORY. The essential history of the War of 1812, newly abridged and ideal for students and history buffs This abridged edition of Donald R. Hickey's comprehensive and authoritative The War of 1812: A Forgotten Conflict has been thoroughly revised for the 200th anniversary of the historic conflict. A myth-shattering study that will inform and entertain students and general readers alike, The War of 1812: A Short History explores the military, diplomatic, and domestic history of our second war with Great Britain, bringing the study up to date with recent scholarship on all aspects of the war, from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada. With new information on military operations, logistics, and the use and capabilities of weaponry, The War of 1812: A Short History explains how the war promoted American nationalism, reinforced the notion of manifest destiny, stimulated peacetime defense spending, and enhanced America's reputation abroad. Hickey also concludes that the war sparked bloody conflicts between pro-war Republican and anti-war Federalist neighbors, dealt a crippling blow to the independence and treaty rights of American Indians, and solidified the United States' antipathy toward the British. Ideal for students and history buffs, this special edition includes selected illustrations, maps, a chronology of major events during the war, and a list of suggested further reading. Donald R. Hickey is a professor of history at Wayne State College in Wayne, Nebraska. He is the author of seven books, including Don't Give Up the Ship! Myths of the War of 1812, and numerous articles. Praise for Donald R. Hickey's The War of 1812: A Forgotten Conflict: "The definitive study."--Journal of American History "A well-researched and extensively documented overview of the causes and consequences of the War of 1812....Highly recommended as an inclusive political, military, and social treatment of a customarily neglected war."--American Library Association Booklist "Despite being forgotten and overlooked, the War of 1812 was a significant milestone in the development of the United States. [Hickey] was accurate when he wrote, 'Although looking to the past, the war was fraught with consequences for the future, and for this reason it is worth studying today. ' And there is no better place to start than with The War of 1812."--Civil War News (Key Words: Donald R. Hickey, The History Of The War Of 1812, Military Operations & Logistics & The Use & Capabilities Of Weaponry In The War of 1812, American Nationalism & The War Of 1812, Treaty Rights Of American Indians).
