In the most detailed history ever of Union warships on the western waters of the Civil War, the author recounts the exploits of the timberclad ships Lexington, Tyler, and Conestoga. Converted to warships from commercial steamboats at the beginning of the conflict, the three formed the core of the North’s Western Flotilla, later the Mississippi Squadron. The book focuses on the activities of these wooden warriors while providing context for the greater war, including accounts of their famous commanders, their roles in both large and small battles, ship-to-ship combat, and support for the armies of Gen. U.S. Grant and Gen. William T. Sherman.

Das in den vergangenen Jahren in Osteuropa intensiv diskutierte Problem der Kollaboration mit der deutschen Besatzungsmacht wahrend des Zweiten Weltkriegs erhalt seine aktuelle Brisanz aus der Frage nach der politischen und moralischen Mitverantwortung und Mitbeteiligung der Besiegten und Okkupierten an der national-sozialistischen Besatzungs- und Vernichtungspolitik. Dabei geht es in der Diskussion auch um Begriffe wie nationale Identitat und ?Wurde', vor deren Hintergrund eine Zusammenarbeit mit dem Feind als ?Verrat' empfunden wurde (und wird). In Nordosteuropa ist das Problem der Kollaboration zudem eingebettet in eine komplexe ethnische Struktur und damit verbundene traditionelle Konfliktlagen, die auch wahrend des Zweiten Weltkrieges eine grosse Bedeutung besassen. Dieser Band beschrankt sich deshalb nicht nur auf die Jahre zwischen 1939 und 1945, sondern verfolgt zudem den Ansatz, den Begriff Kollaboration auch ausserhalb seiner zeitlichen Gebundenheit an den Zweiten Weltkrieg auf seine Eignung fur die Analyse von Phanomenen zu untersuchen, die in der Zeit vor 1939 und nach 1945 im Spannungsfeld zwischen Nation und Fremdherrschaft eine zentrale Bedeutung hatten und in den nationalen Historiographien lange verdrangt wurden. Den regionalen Schwerpunkt bilden Polen, Litauen, Lettland und Russland/Sowjetunion, erganzt um einen Beitrag zur Tschechoslowakei. Fallstudien bieten Einblicke in die Ereignisse, aber auch in die historiographische und politisch-gesellschaftliche Auseinandersetzung wahrend und nach den Geschehnissen. Erganzt werden die Landerstudien durch grundlegende Beitrage zu den Begriffen ?Kollaboration' und ?Fremdherrschaft'.

Bottom-up history at its very best, A People’s History of the Civil War "does for the Civil War period what Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States did for the study of American history in general" (Library Journal). Widely praised upon its initial release, it was described as "meticulously researched and persuasively argued" by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Historian David Williams has written the first account of the American Civil War though the eyes of ordinary people—foot soldiers, slaves, women, prisoners of war, draft resisters, Native Americans, and others. Richly illustrated with little-known anecdotes and first-hand testimony, this pathbreaking narrative moves beyond presidents and generals to tell a new and powerful story about America’s most destructive conflict. A People’s History of the Civil War is "readable social history" that "sheds fascinating light" (Publishers Weekly) on this crucial period. In so doing it recovers the long-overlooked perspectives and forgotten voices of one of the defining chapters of American history.
