The Second American Revolution
The Civil War-Era Struggle Over Cuba And The Rebirth Of The American Republic
de Gregory P Downs
Sobre o livro
Argues that we can see the US Civil War anew by understanding it as a revolution. More than a fight to preserve the Union and end slavery, the conflict refashioned a nation, in part by remaking its Constitution. More than a struggle of brother against brother, it entailed remaking an Atlantic world that centred in surprising ways on Cuba and Spain.
