"An excellent example of social history and its many possibilities. A major void in Civil War history has now been admirably filled."--William R. Wantland, Northwest Nazarene College
"[A] highly original and pathbreaking collection of essays...[T]he essays are especially valuable because they treat the experiences of ordinary people--black and white, male and female--in both North and South...The editors' introduction and epilog and an extensive bibliography make this an especially useful source for scholars and teachers."--Library Journal
"Finally the study of gender is out of the Civil War closet. Catherine Clinton and Nina Silber have collected the latest and best historical essays of the emerging scholarship on the social history of the Civil War. Divided Houses: Gender and the Civil War ranges from issues of masculinity and femininity to the effect of war on African-American children. This is a thoroughly useful, entirely readable, historically notable volume stitched together by the perceptive commentary of the author-editors."--Jean H. Baker, Goucher College

"Divided Houses should be required reading for all interested in how gender influences historical events, not just for students of the Civil War. Proves that exhaustively-mined evidence can still yield new insights when carefully considered."--Wanda Ellen Wakefield, SUNY-Buffalo
