Rowman & Littlefield, 2000. First American edition. Hardcover. First American edition. As new, unused copy in dust jacket. Hardcover. xiv+ 255 pp. with bibliographal essay, index. Illustrated. Respected, highly original work that challenges traditional explanations for the origin of the American Civil War. Attmepts to explain the war' origins typically relied heavily on on regional sympathie sna mthyologies---that the South left the Union to maintain slavery while Lincoln's primary goal was to preserve the nation. The author, uing primary documents from both foreign and domestic observers, argues that the southern States were legitimately exercising their rights as expressed in the Declaration and that the Civil War was primarily a battle over competing commercial interests.
