About the Author:

Eric Foner is the preeminent historian of his generation, highly respected by historians of every stripe―whether they specialize in political history or social history. His books have won the top awards in the profession, and he has been president of both major history organizations: the American Historical Association and the Organization of American Historians. He has worked on every detail of Give Me Liberty!, which displays all of his trademark strengths as a scholar, teacher, and writer. A specialist on the Civil War/Reconstruction period, he regularly teaches the nineteenth-century survey at Columbia University, where he is DeWitt Clinton Professor of History. In 2011, Foner's The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery won the Pulitzer Prize in History, the Bancroft Prize, and the Lincoln Prize.

Review:

“A concise history of the causes, impact and aftershocks of the Civil War―a brisk, lucid, highly readable survey. . . . Will be irresistible to Civil War aficionados. . . . [Foner] is a thoughtful historian with a novelist's eye for color and detail and a journalist's talent for cutting to the heart of his arguments. . . . An essential contribution to the Civil War bookshelf.”
- Harold Holzer, Chicago Tribune
