This is the social history to add to military accounts of the Civil War. Levine focuses on the process by which the war to preserve the Union became a revolutionary struggle to transform American society by freeing the slaves for all time. Listeners learn how that struggle changed the fate of African-Americans in both the North and South and how slowly white Americans embraced the change. Levine takes particular joy in the insensitive, hypocritical, and self-serving statements of the Southern ruling class. Peter Jay Fernandez's deep voice and deliberate narration suit the subject. He conveys the irony Levine intends. His carefully measured pace and clear pronunciation bring the listener along. F.C. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2013]
