How the South Won the Civil War

Oligarchy, Democracy, and the Continuing Fight for the Soul of America

Heather Cox Richardson

  • A provocative book that is sure to stir debate in an election year
  • Provides critical insights into the essential paradox of American history--that democracy has always depended on inequality--and why that makes democracy vulnerable to oligarchs
  • Explores how Southern ideologies not only survived but flourished in the West following the Civil War
  • Challenges the myth of the John Wayne-esque cowboy presented in popular culture, inviting us to look more closely at the "Wild West"
