Abstract

war? It is no substitute for the conventional narrative because Taylor's coverage and focus are too narrow. Besides his cursory treatment of the conventional military history, he examines only three of the eight theaters of the war (the fronts on Detroit, Niagara, and St. Lawrence rivers, but not those on the Lake Champlain­Richelieu River corridor, the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, the Southwest, and the high seas).Whether scholars will find a way to incorporate Taylor's approach into a new narrative framework remains to be seen. In the meantime, they will doubtless mine his work for information for years to come. For this reason alone, it is a welcome addition to the literature. Do nald R.
