stanley harrold is a professor of history at South Carolina State University. He is author of Border War: Fighting over Slavery before the Civil War (University of North Carolina Press, 2010). American Civil Wars: The United States, Latin America, Europe, and the Crisis of the 1860s. Edited by Don H. Doyle. (Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 2017. Pp. 259. Cloth, $85.00; paper, $27.95.) In recent years, the “transnational turn” in American historiography has inspired a growing number of works that situate the Civil War in a global context. Few of these works, however, venture beyond Europe. To begin to remedy this deficiency, Don H. Doyle convened a conference at the University of South Carolina in 2014. Funded in large part by the National Endowment for the Humanities, it brought together a group of regional specialists in the history of the Americas.
