James Loewen on the Myth of the Lost Cause
This is an interview with James Loewen, who is the co-editor of The Confederate and Neo-Confederate Reader: The “Great Truth” About the “Lost Cause” published by the University Press of Mississippi. I already use most of the documents that are included in this reader, but it is nice to have such a collection available to high school and college instructors. It will definitely come in handy for my course on Civil War Memory next trimester.

"In this stunning and well-researched book, Kevin Levin catches the new waves of the study of memory, black soldiers, and the darker underside of the Civil War as well as anyone has... Levin is both superb scholar and public historian, showing us a piece of the real war that does now get into the books, as well as into site interpretation."
