"Civil War News" Praises "Confederate and Neo-Confederate Reader."

Civil War News, one of the major, if not the major Civil War publication, in their book review praises the "Confederate and Neo-Confederate Reader." You can read the review at this link:

A quote from Edward H. Bonekemper III:

"In the same vein, this book contains documents and arguments reflecting a “neo-Confederate” ideology of racism that emerged during Reconstruction, came to the fore during the “Nadir,” and continued to affect Americans’ thinking at least through the civil rights movement and the civil rights legislation of the 1960s.

This thought-provoking tome should be required reading for all teachers of American and Civil War history. Its contents reflect a long and shameful history of racism in America — a major reason for continuing controversies about the causes, nature and impacts of the Civil War."
