"A thoughtful, scholarly, and highly readable survey of the changes wrought in northern society by the twin engines of Civil War and industrialization."--Kirkus Reviews
"Required reading for all students of the era. The generals, the politics, and the campaigns are here, but they are treated from such a different perspective that Paludan has accomplished the scholarly paradox of a fresh innovative work that is based on secondary material."--Jean H. Baker, Reviews in American History
"A remarkable achievement that boldly seeks to link the new economic and social history with traditional political and military approaches to the conflict. A stunning accomplishment of synthetic scholarship."--American Historical Review
"Both a moving narrative of people under pressure and judicious survey of major topics, this book will speak to the imagination of students and teachers long after they have put down other recent works of crude historical materialism and bestselling popular syntheses."--Civil War History
"Paludan's brilliant prose rests on wide-ranging, imaginative research and gifted historical insights. A splendid book that will take precedence among studies of the North in war."--Frank Vandiver, Journal of American History
"For readers interested in a thoughtful survey of the impact of the Civil War on northern society, this is the place to begin."--Joseph T. Glatthaar, Georgia Historical Quarterly
