  • 4600


In the first scholarly treatment of pacifism during the Civil War, two experts in Anabaptist studies explore the important role of sectarian religion in the conflict and the effects wartime Americanization had on these religious communities. Lehman and Nolt describe the various strategies used by religious groups who struggled to come to terms with the American mainstream without sacrificing religious values—some opted for greater political engagement, others chose a political withdrawal, and some individuals renounced their faith and entered the fight. (304pp. illus. index. hardcover. Johns Hopkins Press, 2007.)
