Publisher: Oxford Univeristy Press
Retail Price: $12.95
Issue: Winter 2002
Blair's study of the complicated management of national morale shows that the collapse of the Confederate nationalism was not a simple escalation of discontent from the start of the war to the finish. Rather, the book illustrates how complex manipulations of political policy, resources, patriotism, and identity converged to sway public sentiment. Paperback release.
