Author(s): Avery O. Craven

'In recent years a highly industrious school of historians has begun asking whether the war should have been fought at all and whether it was perhaps not more the fault of the North than of the South. Seeking to revise earlier judgments they have become known as the revisionists, and one of the most gifted and studious of them all is Avery Craven, whose The Coming of the Civil War . . . is one of the landmarks of revisionist literature.'# and Bruce Catton, American Heritage'. . . those who would examine the democratic process during a period of progressive breakdown, in order to understand the dangers it embodies within itself, will find The Coming of the Civil War a classic analysis.'# and Louis D. Rubin, Jr., Sewanee Review'The book has always been recognized, even by its most severe critics, as a work of consummate scholarship.'# and T. Harry Williams, Baton Rouge Morning Advocate
