Standing Their Ground

Standing Their Ground

This book explores a local iteration of a profound human experience: the transformation of agriculture. Focusing on small farm owners in North Carolina from the post-Civil War era to the post-Civil Rights era, it argues that they resisted changes to farming that did not square with their agrarian ideology. However, the antidemocratic character of the Jim Crow South weakened their resistance.

The American Civil War

The American Civil War

The American Civil War was one of the longest and bloodiest of modern wars. It is also one of the most mysterious. It has captured the imagination of writers, artists and film-makers for decades but the reality of it confuses and divides historians even today. In this magisterial history of the first modern war, the distinguished military historian John Keegan unpicks the geography, leadership and strategic logic of the war and takes us to the heart of the conflict. His captivating work promises to be the definitive history of the American Civil War.
