we define them according to a particular theological definition that makes it surprising. Perhaps new definitions would reveal even more surprises. Michael J. Altman michael j. altman, associate professor of religious studies, is the author of Heathen, Hindoo, Hindu: American Representations of India, 1721–1893 (Oxford University Press, 2017). Approaching Civil War and Southern History. By William J. Cooper. (Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press, 2019. Pp. 200. Cloth, $38.00.) Approaching Civil War and Southern History is aptly named, as eminent historian William J. Cooper’s essays analyze some of the most important debates in the history of the Civil War era. Well written and meticulously researched, the collection brings together a career’s worth of scholarship on the American South. The ten essays were previously published between 1970 and 2012, and Cooper serves as both author and editor of the collec- tion, including a preface to the book and adding an introduction to each chapter.
