Revised Edition
With a New Preface and Afterword

In a revised edition, brought completely up to date with a new preface and afterword and an expanded bibliography, Bruce Levine's succinct and persuasive treatment of the basic issues that precipitated the Civil War is as compelling as ever. Levine explores the far-reaching, divisive changes in American life that came with the incomplete Revolution of 1776 and the development of two distinct social systems, one based on slavery, the other on free labor--changes out of which the Civil War developed.

Bruce Levine, James G. Randall Professor of History at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is a co-author of Who Built America? and the author of The Spirit of 1848: German Immigrants, Labor Conflict, and the Coming of Civil War and Confederate Emancipation: Southern Plans to Free Slaves during the Civil War.
