The distinguished historian James McPherson has written the most significant one-volume history of the American Civil War; beginning with a description of the North and South in the years before the war, McPherson examines the economic, social and ideological aspects of sectional conflict and traces the political processes that eventually led to secession. He deals with every aspect of the war itself (military campaigns and battles, political leadership, foreign policy, economic mobilization, and life behind the lines). Finally, the author sees the Reconstruction as an attempt to remodel Southern institutions along Northern lines, and concludes that the issues growing out of the war remained prominent until the end of the century.
