From the Publisher"This remarkably thorough yet easy-to-digest encyclopedia is highly recommended for high school, public, and academic libraries."
Booklist, Starred Review
"This is another in a series of encyclopedias on major wars published by ABC-CLIO and edited by Spencer Tucker, and a fine addition it is. It is rich in features. . . . This encyclopedia is not only an excellent reference source for secondary and undergraduate students and the general reader but its many special features make it a useful starting point for advanced researchers. It is highly recommended for public and academic libraries."
"The writing is consistently of high quality; cross-referencing is a breeze with the multitude of "see also" terms at the end of each entry. . . . With these wide-ranging, exhaustively researched volumes, Tucker has accomplished for the American Civil War what he has previously achieved for many other conflicts, from Korea to the Cold War. An excellent resource for school research projects and anyone with an interest in Civil War history."
Library Journal, Starred Review

School Library Journal, Starred Review
"This comprehensive encyclopedia is a must for high school, public library, and undergraduate library collections supporting students who need concise entries on the Civil War. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty; general readers."
"This is probably the finest reference source on the American Civil War. It is comprehensive and provides access to many primary source materials for students and users, along with the source of the documents so a user can access the original document, should they desire to do so. . . . [F]or now American Civil War: The Definitive Encyclopedia and Document Collection stands at the forefront of sources to consult for those who wish to study the conflict."
