The valuable historical data contained in these pages, taken from the words of those who created and influenced the critical events of the time, provide a striking understanding of the development and complexity of the Confederate ideology before, during, and after the Civil War. This book also traces the evolving historical interpretation of that most critically important period of national history and its impact upon present-day perceptions of the Civil War era."--James Oliver Horton, author of The Landmarks of African American History and co-editor of Slavery and Public History: The Tough Stuff of American Memory" ""This is a fantastic collection of essential documents that I wish I'd had way back in my student days. It would have saved me many years of stumbling across them in piecemeal fashion. Their broad sweep gives the reader a good sense of the Confederacy's foundations and a firm notion of why many of why many of the issues that brought it into being are still with us today."--Harold D. Williams, author of A People's History of the Civil War: Struggles for the Meaning of Freedom and Bitterly Divided: The South's Inner Civil War" ""This is The book we've all been needing out here! And what a great team to put it together."--Monroe Gilmour, Coordinator, Western North Carolina Citizens for an End to Institutional Bigotry"--BOOK JACKET." ;
