The American Civil War: A Handbook of Literature and Research

the Civil War and Reconstruction on Arkansas ( 1994), and John I. Smith has written a sympathetic biography of Arkansas governor Isaac Murphy, The Courage of a Southern Unionist ( 1979).

James Marten discusses the persistence of wartime unionism in Texas and offers an introduction to state politics in his Texas Divided ( 1990). Two dissertations-- "A Political Labyrinth" by Nancy Head Bowen and "The Texas Governorship, 1861-1865" by Fredericka Ann Meiners--treat political alignments, state-federal relations, military affairs, and financial matters.

Despite the broad coverage of Civil War--era politics, literature about the Southern states is limited in scope and sophistication. Scholars interested in the topic have a wide-open field in which to develop new studies that will take the discussion of politics in the period 1861 to 1865 beyond familiar debates about federal-state rivalry, dissent, and the expansion of government authority. Updated surveys of state government and politics in the various states are needed, as are general works on the Democratic and opposition parties. Significant Confederate cities--New Orleans, Charleston, Mobile, Nashville--deserve attention, and our understanding of the politics of common people--urban and rural, white and black--suffers from a lack of study.
