Reviewer Thomas F. Curran writes that The Long Civil War: New Explorations of America’s Enduring Conflict, edited by John David Smith and Raymond Arsenault provides an “expansive spectrum of scholarship being produced” on the Civil War era “that employs a broader chronological understanding of the war.” The collected essays investigate several aspects of the Civil War era—antebellum antislaveryism, Civil War commanders and their tactics, disabled veterans and veteran suicide, historical memory of Lincoln, including that of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, the historiography of slavery, and the Civil War era in film culture. The book “provides a taste” of the sweeping chronological approach to Civil War studies.
