The Civil War in American Culture

Will Kaufman

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • multidisciplinary study of the cultural legacy of the Civil War: in literature, film, music, computer games, the internet, role play, material culture, and civic demonstration
  • situates race at the heart of the discussion and challenges the culture of denial in which race and slavery are marginalised in Civil War remembrance
  • written in a lively narrative voice, deliberately jargon-free
  • offers innovative readings of well-known and unexplored cultural material"
