There are so many books on so many aspects of the history of the United States, offering such a wide variety of interpretations, that students, teachers, scholars, and librarians often need help and advice on how to find what they want. The Reader's Guide to American History is designed to meet that need by adopting a new and constructive approach to the appreciation of this rich historiography. Each of the 600 entries on topics in political, social and economic history describes and evaluates some 6 to 12 books on the topic, providing guidance to the reader on everything from broad surveys and interpretive works to specialized monographs. The entries are devoted to events and individuals, as well as broader themes, and are written by a team of well over 200 contributors, all scholars of American history. - Publisher
Legacy of disunion : the enduring significance of the American Civil War by Susan-Mary Grant( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The conviction that the American Civil War left a massive legacy to the country has generally been much clearer than the definition of what that legacy is. Did the war, as Ulysses S. Grant believed, bequeath power, intelligence, and sectional harmony to America, or did it, as many have argued since, sow racial and regional bitterness that has blighted the nation since 1865? What, exactly, was the legacy of disunion?" "This collection explores that question from a variety of angles, showcasing the work of twelve scholars from the United States and the United Kingdom. The essays ponder the role of history, myth, and media in sustaining the memory of the war and its racial implications in the South; Abraham Lincoln's legacy; and the war's consequences in less studied areas, such as civil-military relations, constitutional and legal history, and America's ascent on the international stage. By juxtaposing American and non-American interpretations, this stimulating volume sheds light on aspects of the war's legacy that from a purely American viewpoint are sometimes too close for comfort. Perhaps the greatest legacy of the Civil War is its ongoing debate and continuing fascination worldwide."--Jacket
The North and the nation in the era of the Civil War by Peter J Parish( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this rich collection of essays, a leading historian argues that in order to fully understand the Civil War, we need to grasp the relationship between American national identity and the values of Northern society. Northerners shaped nationalism into an ideology to justify and sustain a war against the South. Parish explores this process, focusing on politics and religion as building blocks of national identity and as sinews that connected Northerners to the Union cause."--Jacket
Slavery : the many faces of a Southern institution by Peter J Parish( Book )

21 editions published between 1979 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this classic short introduction to one of the most important and controversial topics in American history, Peter J Parish investigates slavery from political, economic and social perspectives. He explains the paradox upon which slavery rested: its guiding principle was that slaves were property, but its everyday practice demonstrated the impossibility of denying the slave's humanity. He takes the reader through the origin of the Slave system in the South, outlines the controversies surrounding the economics of slavery and asks what life for slaves was really like. This is the perfect starting point from which to explore American slavery's rich and controversial literature." [Publisher's description]

9 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Divided Union is an account of five of the most dramatic and tragic years in the history of the United States of America. The fledgling superpower pitted families and neighbours against each other in a war concerned with the most fundamental of human motivations: freedom, identity and nation. While great leaders like Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant found their moment, millions of ordinary Americans suffered terribly and more were killed than during the First and Second World Wars combined
