This is a revised edition by David Herbert Donald of his former professor J. G. Randall's book The Civil War and Reconstruction, which was originally published in 1937 and had long been regarded as 'the standard work in its field', serving as a useful basic Civil War reference tool for general readers and textbook for college classes. This Second Edition retains many of the original chapters, 'such as those treating border-state problems, non-military developments during the war, intellectual tendencies, anti-war efforts, religious and educational movements, and propaganda methods [...] bearing evidence of Mr. Randall's thoroughgoing exploration of the manuscripts and archives,' whilst it expands considerably on other original chapters, such as those relating to the Confederacy. Still other portions have been entirely recast or rewritten, such as the pre-war period chapters and Reconstruction chapters, reflecting factual updates since Randall's original publication. A must-read for all Civil War students and scholars.
