    The J. G. Randall Distinguished Professor of History at the University of Illinois and associate editor of North and South magazine, Bruce Levine presents a gripping chronicle of the cultural and economic upheaval the South experienced during and after the Civil War. Drawing upon a treasure trove of diaries, letters, newspaper articles, and government documents, Levine offers a unique perspective on the old South's demise through the voices of those who lived through the conflict.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    the Conclusion


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. Too dense.


    Any additional comments?

    There is much misinformation about slavery, the events leading up to secession, and about why the Confederacy lost the war. This book clears up what happened and why.
