New Additions: Writing the Civil War and New Shelves at WigWags Books

with 2 comments

My copy of Writing the Civil War: The Quest to Understand arrived this week. Thanks to Daniel Sauerwein, a fellow WordPress blogger over at Civil War History for the recommendation. Published by the good folks at University of South Carolina Press, it is edited by James M. McPherson and William J. Cooper, Jr. Contributors include:

  • Michael Les Benedict
  • Drew Gilpin Faust
  • Gary W. Gallagher
  • Joseph Thomas Glatthaar
  • Michael F. Holt
  • Peter Kolchin
  • Reid Mitchell
  • Mark E. Neely, Jr.
  • Philip Shaw Paludan
  • George C. Rable
  • James L. Roark
  • Emory M. Thomas

Note: I’ve put up new bookshelves over at WigWags Books and have begun adding links to my – no kidding – MANY books on writing. It will take me some time to get them all added. That said, there is a new shelf titled specifically, “Writing – Civil War” on which I’ve placed the book above. Please let me know if you’re aware of others in this category.

Finally, I’ve added a new icon/picture to the write navbar of WigWags on which you can click to be directed to books on my bookshelves. This is an actual image of just a few of the books on my home bookshelves. You’ll find the new icon right under the title,

  1. Rene,

    Your quite welcome for the suggestion. I am glad you have this book and hope that it helps you prepare your historiography section of your thesis. BTW, have you narrowed down a topic yet?

  2. Hey Daniel,
    I’ve not narrowed my topic yet but liked the suggestion about focusing on soldiers. My next course is heavily focused on the Civil War itself which I’m really looking forward to and am hopeful that inspiration will come as I immerse a bit more.
