Booknotes III ( December '09 )

New additions this month:

1. The Civil War in Kentucky by Lowell H. Harrison (Univ. Press of Kentucky, 2009 PB reprint, 1st ed. 1975).

University presses seem to be on an unusually large run of paperback reissues of current and classic titles.

2. Blue and Gray Diplomacy: A History of Union and Confederate Foreign Relations by Howard Jones (UNC Press, 2009).

A number of good diplomatic studies have emerged in recent years, and I am looking forward to Jones's synthesis.

3. The Confederacy's Secret Weapon: The Civil War Illustrations of Frank Vizetelly by Douglas W. Bostick (The History Press, 2009).
