CWL--Heavily Reviewed/Interviewed/Blogged: This Republic Of Suffering

This Republic of Suffering: Death and the American Civil War, Drew Gilpin Faust, Knopf Publishing, 368 pages, $27.95

Very rarely does a book on the American Civil War receive such thorough attention by interviewers, reviewers, and bloggers as This Republic of Suffering. I expect a nomination for a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award. The book resonates with the current temper of the times and the climate of opinion; it also opens a view into the historic hearts and minds. This week's New Yorker magazine published today an extended review essay; I expect The New York Review of Books to offer an extensive review. As the links become available, CWL will add them to this page.
