Editorial Reviews

Review

"A well researched, excellently written, and remarkably clever book. It should be required reading for any scholar interested in the Northern home front or the construction of American nationalism.... A delight to read." - Civil War History "The issues raised in Lawson's book - changing and contested definitions of loyalty, patriotism, nationalism - seem as fresh and relevant today as they were during the Civil War years.... An important contribution." - American Historical Review "An original and important study of how a new nation was forged out of American ideologies, cultural practices, and institutions that helped win the Civil War." - David W. Blight, author of Race and Reunion: The Civil War in American Memory "An original, provocative and compelling book [written] with a rare intelligence and much eloquence." - Journal of American History "A landmark work and the best I have seen on nationalism in the North." - Mark E. Neely, Jr., author of The Union Divided: Party Conflict in the Civil War North "Highly recommended." - Civil War News "A finely-crafted study that adds significantly to our understanding of how the War for the Union changed America's understanding of itself. Deserves a wide audience." - George M. Fredrickson, author of The Inner Civil War"
