THE CIVIL WAR IN BOOKS: AN ANALYTICAL BIBLIOGRAPHY, by David J. Eicher (The University of Illinois Press, 407 pages, $39.95).

Notingthe lack of a bibliography broad or current enough to provide a sufficient list of theworks needed to acquire a "well-rounded, objective knowledge" of the AmericanCivil War, Eicher offers the 1,100 most important Civil War-related worksavailable. With a foreword by noted historian Gary W. Gallagher, seven of whosebooks made the list, this study includes works from every important sphere ofCivil War historiography. Major sections range from "Battles and Campaigns" to"Unit Histories," while subheadings cover "Naval Warfare," "The Coming of theWar," "Strategy and Tactics," and many other topics. Commentary on each booknotes the strengths that resulted in its inclusion and points out any notableweaknesses.
