"The essays cogently summarize the latest scholarship and suggest new scholarly directions. The book includes a fine narrative overview by the editors as well as a brief afterword by James McPherson that highlights the major historiographical fautlines underlying this complex-and, in years past, frequently heated-subject... Handsome, thoughtful, and accessible, this book deserves a place on everyone's bookshelf."-American Historical Review "Editors Robert Engs and Randall Miller have assembled six of the profession's finest historians and have given nineteenth-century political history another day. In this well-conceptualized volume, Eric Foner, Michael Holt, Phillip Shaw Paludan, Mark Neely, Jean Baker, and Brooks Simpson provide some interesting essays as well as some points of departure for studying the genesis, growth, and contradictions of the Republican Party."-Florida Historical Quarterly
