Politics and Ideology in the Age of the Civil War

Eric Foner Oxford University Press, Oct 2, 1980 - History - 256 pages 0 Reviews Insisting that politics and ideology must remain at the forefront of any examination of nineteenth-century America, Foner reasserts the centrality of the Civil War to the people of that period. The first section of this book deals with the causes of the sectional conflict; the second, with the antislavery movement; and a final group of essays treats land and labor after the war. Taken together, Foner's essays work towards reintegrating the social, political, and intellectual history of the nineteenth century. Preview this book »
