A readable fast moving history of the secession crisis and the outbreak of war at Fort Sumter Klein describes all of the various political maneuvering and strategic debates in the North and the South in a well paced readable fashionKlein is primarily concerned with the forts crisis in Charleston and describes events here in an engaging lively way Despite compromise proposal after compromise proposal both short and long term the northern Republicans would not budge regarding the extension of slavery and likewise the South saw the loss of its hold on the presidency as a threat to its own institutions namely slavery These die hard positions made things exceedingly difficult for those inclined to compromise For many secession was a direct threat to the very concept of republican government Needless to say the whole tone of the narrative has a grim almost fatalistic tone Secession Klein writes was not an arcane concept that southerners only rarely considered but a deliberate threat that they took pretty damn seriously a house wine always on hand in Klein s wordsKlein brings a lot of characters into this story but he often only refers to them later he ll introduce so and so briefly in this section and then mention their actual actions in detail much later which can get a little confusing at times The descriptions of some of these characters seem excessive an entire chapter is dedicated to the personal lives of some minor South Carolina figures Klein also calls the North s theories of a Great Slave Conspiracy in which wily southern interests supported the Kansas Nebraska Act to gain a foothold for slavery in free territory absurd although there is some truth to this Buchanan for example attempted to influence Supreme Court justice Grier to go along with the southern majority on the Dred Scott caseA well researched compelling and dramatic history
