This republic of suffering : death and the American Civil War by Drew Gilpin Faust( Book )

29 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 3,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An illuminating study of the American struggle to comprehend the meaning and practicalities of death in the face of the unprecedented carnage of the Civil War. During the war, approximately 620,000 soldiers lost their lives. An equivalent proportion of today's population would be six million. This book explores the impact of this enormous death toll from every angle: material, political, intellectual, and spiritual. Historian Faust delineates the ways death changed not only individual lives but the life of the nation and its understanding of the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. She describes how survivors mourned and how a deeply religious culture struggled to reconcile the slaughter with its belief in a benevolent God, and reconceived its understanding of life after death.--From publisher description
Mothers of invention : women of the slaveholding South in the American Civil War by Drew Gilpin Faust( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 2,341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Confederate men marched off to battle, white women across the South confronted unaccustomed and unsought responsibilities: directing farms and plantations, providing for families, and supervising increasingly restive slaves. As southern women struggled "to do a man's business," they found themselves compelled to reconsider their most fundamental assumptions about their identities and about the larger meaning of womanhood. Drew Faust offers a compelling picture of the more than half-million women who belonged to the slaveholding families of the Confederacy during this period of acute crisis

The creation of Confederate nationalism : ideology and identity in the Civil War South by Drew Gilpin Faust( Book )

9 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For decades, historians have debated the meaning and significance of Confederate nationalism and the role it played in the outcome of the Civil War. Yet they have paid little attention to the actual development and content of this Confederate ideology. In The Creation of Confederate Nationalism, Drew Gilpin Faust argues that coming to a fuller understanding of southern thought during the Civil War period offers a valuable refraction of the essential assumptions on which the Old South and the Confederacy were built. She shows the benefits of exploring Confederate nationalism "as the South's commentary upon itself, as its effort to represent southern culture to the world at large, to history, and perhaps most revealingly, to its own people."--Back cover
James Henry Hammond and the Old South : a design for mastery by Drew Gilpin Faust( Book )

12 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in English and held by 762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this finely drawn and gracefully written biography ... Faust has done much more than provide us with a badly needed full-length study of a key political figure and proslavery ideologue in antebellum South Carolina. Her success in placing the tragic dimensions of Hammond's life fully within the context of the larger tragedy which defines the internal history of the slave South elevates her biography to superb cultural and social history." -- Georgia Historical Quarterly

Sometimes southern
