The Civil War as Global Conflict: Transnational Meanings of the American Civil War
In an attempt to counter the insular narratives of much of the sesquicentennial commemorations of the Civil War in the US, David T. Gleeson and Simon Lewis present this collection of essays that examine the war as more than a North American conflict. The book, while addressing the origins of the Civil War, places the struggle over slavery and sovereignty in the US in the context of other conflicts in the Western hemisphere. Additionally Gleeson and Lewis offer an analysis of the impact of the war and its results overseas.
