Political History of America's Wars



September 2006 | 416 pages | CQ Press
Political History of America's Wars is the first reference work to explore the legislative, social, and policy aspects of America's major wars, rebellions, and insurrections. This new volume weaves together important primary source documents, informative biographies, and in-depth essays to provide coverage of the political antecedents, events, and consequences of America's wars, from the American Revolution to Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Political History of America's Wars features:

  • Chronological chapters on each of America's approximately fifty wars, rebellions, and insurrections
  • In-depth essays discussing America's colonial period and the Indian Wars, the imperialist era of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the modern era of America as global policeman, and more
  • Primary source documents and materials on relevant legislation and congressional resolutions, executive orders, proclamations, court cases, and constitutional amendments
  • Vital coverage of war-time events and trends including elections and political parties, public opinion, propaganda, media coverage, foreign relations, diplomacy, and treaties and alliances

A helpful glossary, a comprehensive table of laws and treaties, and an index make Political History of America's Wars a valuable research tool that will serve researchers in political science, U.S. history, sociology, journalism, geography, and more.
