Editorial Reviews

Review

This new guide aims to help serious researchers and casual browsers find what they're looking for about the war. If you buy only one book this year on the Civil War, this should be it. (Civil War Times Illustrated)

The authors give equal time to both the battlefield and the homefront, where important social, cultural and racial changes occurred. (The New York Times)

A valuable guide to anyone who is interested in the war and hopes to avoid hours of circular and fruitless web navigation. (The Christian Science Monitor)

More than 300 sites have been neatly packaged by categories that include special looks at black troops, slavery, and women in the Civil War; along with the battles and military leaders. (Roanoke Times And World News)

Highly recommended. This work will serve as a guide to the best current Civil War scholarship available online. (Library Journal)

A new portal to a feast of information. The Civil War on the Web is a boon to those exasperated by their search engines. (QUOTE AFFILIATION: Publisher's Weekly)

My wife got me this book for my birthday. I'm a big Civil War buff and even I found sites in this book that I never would have found otherwise. I found so much to read on the Civil War on the web through this book its like getting a 100 books (for the price of one). Plus, there is a CD that makes linking to the sites even easier. If you know someone who likes the Civil War, this is the book for them.

An excellent book to purchase whether you are an advanced Civil War researcher or a novice. I found that the book's reviews are on the mark in ranking websites that present solid information clearly, and are relatively easy to navigate as well.
Using Civil War on the Web, I discovered exceptional websites that I would have overlooked otherwise, sifting through hundreds upon hundreds of hits. I very highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know where the best information is without spending hours on the search alone.

Format: Paperback
Anyone who has lost themselves in the web searching for Civil War information know that the amount, quantity, and accessibility of material can, and does, fascinate and frustrate. Sites that looked promising turn into dead ends, information presented can be of dubious quality and, most of all, the sheer volume of material can consume many tedious hours. The Civil War on the Web highlights the best sites, and will save this researcher much valuable time. Civil War enthusiasts will also enjoy the authors' essays and summaries for the insight they provide on the state of scholarship today. A must for anyone curious about the war who has access to the internet!

Format: Paperback
Very well done. Logically laid out and easy to use. CD-ROM attachment is very helpful.
I found myself skipping the profiles and going straight to the sites and am disappointed that the number of sites are limited . . . of course they are only profiling the best. It does cover a very broad number of topics.
A good effort but they barely scratched the surface. I had a better time working the link lists at major sites.
