Two volume set. "...the most comprehensive account yet to appear of Britain's role in the American Civil War. Four diverse but related strands are woven together in this first volume which takes the story to the early summer of 1862. The author discusses the Southern attitude toward Britain and Confederate attempts to influence British policy; Union attitudes and the Union government's policy toward Britain; the Canadian response to the crisis and its effect upon the imperial connection; and Britain's relations with the United States on the eve of secession, the reaction of her government and people to the outbreak of war, and the enforcement of the policy of neutrality."--jacket "The second and concluding volume of this definitive study of Britain's response to the American Civil War-- ...is concerned with the precarious Anglo-American relationship between the summer of 1862 and the final defeat of the Confederacy."--jacket
