Civil War in the Age of Nationalism

«This is an important book. . . . The authors have put forward a compelling argument for the nineteenth-century United States as a 'nation among nations,' therefore making it comparable to other regions of the world and also connected to them by the many transnational links discussed in the book. In doing so, they have succeeded in destroying the last remnants of American exceptionalism while offering American historians a number of suggestions for future comparative studies focusing on important themes such as nation-building and nationalism, warfare and technology, religion and culture, and emancipation and imperial expansion in the central decades of the nineteenth century." - Enrico Dal Lago, author of Civil War and Agrarian Unrest: The Confederate South and Southern Italy

"Lucid and learned, The Civil War in the Age of Nationalism is the most imaginative and sweeping guide yet in the effort—then and now—to understand the relationship of the U.S. Civil War to the transformations of the Atlantic and Pacific worlds. Eichhorn and Campbell utilize both comparative and transnational tools to capture what made the U.S. Civil War distinct and—more crucially—what reveals it as a part of the ongoing transnational transformations of nation, war, and belonging." - Gregory P. Downs, author of After Appomattox: Military Occupation and the Ends of War

"This is a fascinating and insightful book that will be essential reading for anyone interested in the international context that shaped and was shaped by the American Civil War. The authors provide both a useful appreciation of current scholarship in the field and pointers for future research based on transnational and comparative perspectives." - Michael J. Turner, author of Stonewall Jackson, Beresford Hope, and the Meaning of the American Civil War in Britain»
