Guide to Civil War Books: An Annotated Selection of Modern Works on the War between the States.
Barbuto, Domenica M.; Kreisel, Martha
This guide to Civil War books provides help in locating information about a specific person, battle, or campaign, as well as social or political conditions during the Civil War period. Teachers and librarians will find it useful when developing assignments or guiding students to sources for their research. This resource guide brings together books of general interest about the Civil War published during the past 20 years. The selected works address all issues of the war, including causes of the conflict, secession, battles and campaigns, race and slavery, biographies and personal narratives, and Reconstruction. The guide is arranged by subject; within each subject category the materials are arranged alphabetically. Each entry is numbered and includes a brief annotation. In addition to relating the scope of the book, where appropriate, the annotation provides information about special features, such as maps or tables, and about supplementary material in appendices. There are three indexes: author-editor, subject, and title. (EH)
