This volume of pioneering essays brings together an array of well-established and emerging historians from Europe and the United States whose common endeavor is to situate America’s Civil War within the wider framework of global history. The history of America’s Civil War has typically been interpreted within a familiar national narrative focusing on the internal discord between North and South over the future of slavery in the United States. These essays view the American conflict through an array of topical prisms that aim to take readers beyond the familiar themes of U.S. Civil War history. They also aim to look beyond the national boundaries that typically confine general understanding of this momentous conflict.
