9780061319655: The Confederate Nation 1861-1865 (The new American nation series)

The Confederate Nation has yet to be superseded as the standard title on the subject. ” —Journal of Southern History, 2007

“Incisive and insightful.... As good a short history of the Southern war effort was we have.” —T. Harry Williams, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Lincoln and His Generals

Emory M. Thomas’s critically acclaimed chronicle of the Confederacy remains widely recognized as the standard history of the South during the Civil War. Now with a new introduction by the author, The Confederate Nation presents a high readable, highly personal portrait of the Southern experience during the Civil War. Thomas, renowned for his illuminating biographies of Robert E. Lee and other Southern generals, here delivers the definitive account of the political and military events that defined the nation during its period of greatest turmoil.

From the Back Cover:

We have for years needed a serious, scholarly, readable work on the Confederate nation that rounds up modem scholarship and offers a fresh and detached view of the whole subject. This work fills that order admirably ... [Thomas] sensibly and deftly integrates the course of Southern military fortunes with the concerns that shaped them and were shaped by them. In doing so he also manages to convey a sense of how the war itself deteriorated from something spirited and gallant to something base and mean and modern on both sides.

About the Author:

Emory M. Thomas is Regents Professor of History Emeritus at the University of Georgia. He is the author of eight books, including acclaimed biographies of the Confederate generals J. E. B. Stuart and Robert E. Lee. He lives in Athens, Georgia.
