Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An excellent biography that clearly supersedes earlier works. Highly recommended."
Choice

"Effectively depicts the relationship between Vance and his lieutenant colonel . . . while conveying a clear sense of Vance's military skills and deficiencies. . . . McKinney's approach . . . is refreshing, and the analysis is thought-provoking."
Civil War History

"Peels away the layers of myth to unmask a champion of the Lost Cause. . . . [A] masterful biography."
Georgia Historical Quarterly

"A well-written, exhaustive account of Zeb Vance's life and politics. . . . Masterfully combining biography, history, and historiography, McKinney creates a complete picture of a tumultuous time and of a man who dominated those times. This will stand as the definitive biography of Zebulon Vance."
Journal of Southern History

"McKinney has etched a persuasive and surely definitive portrait of this significant nineteenth-century political figure. . . . Excellent."
Journal of American Studies

"Carefully crafted, this impressive biography tells us much about the shortcomings of political leadership in the wartime and postwar South."
— Daniel W. Crofts, The College of New Jersey

"The best study ever of Zeb Vance. McKinney is thorough, fair, and unflinching in his analysis."
— Paul D. Escott, Wake Forest University
