Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Southern culture before and during the Civil War has been the topic of several previous books, but Faust ( The Creation of Confederate Nationalism , Louisiana State Univ. Pr., 1988) paints a clearer picture of life in the South involving men and women as well as blacks and whites. She achieves this aim by exploring the cultural, moral, and personal dilemmas that confronted Southerners during this period. The first half of the book involves the concept of the Southern man and how he dealt with agriculture, slavery, religion, and war. The second half deals with the Southern woman and how she handled changes in her life owing to war. This new role involved the mobilization of women for civilian support services for the army as well as agricultural work for the support of the family. The book gives a vivid picture of people's thoughts and deeds as they were involved in various situations brought on by the war. An excellent book for any Civil War or Southern culture collection.
