Very Good. 12mo-over 6¾"-7¾" tall 0140212426 Paperback Paperback. This book is a survey of the momentous period that encompassed the American Civil War, yet it is concerned not only with that tragedy but also with the emergence of modern American civilization from the simplicity and confidence of earlier times. Although the author gives politics their due weight, his unconventional approach sees political decisions in the context of society as a whole. He therefore interprets the Civil War as an ideological struggle between men who were responding to the deeper needs of their times. Economic influences are considered, but the emphasis is on the way in which convictions drove men to irreconcilable positions. Thus the book's underlying theme is the perennial problem of democratic societies: How can politics deal with controversy when each side believes that its opponents have betrayed the namtion's faith and traditions. 488 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, and all types of Academic Literature. )
