Abstract

Book Reviews Overall, The War in Words presents a new perspective on the U.S.Dakota War of 1862, providing a deeper understanding of it through a more serious look at the complex identities and backgrounds of those who have shared its stories. This approach is a positive step forward in the way in which the stories are told, discussed, and debated. In addition, this work will undoubtedly provide an example of an approach to understanding the personal responses to war that may prove useful to those readers and scholars engaged in peace studies, truth commissions, and historical representations of war.
