Elazar focuses not on the Civil War itself, but on the 15 years between 1846 and 1861 which brought the country from union to civil conflict, examining the period both as a chapter in American history and as a case study in the political life of a democratic polity. Co- published with the Center for the Study of Federalism. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
