Greatest Nation of the Earth by Heather Cox Richardson
Book DescriptionWhile fighting a war for the Union, the Republican party attempted to construct the most powerful and socially advanced nation in the world. Rejecting common assumptions that wartime legislation was a series of piecemeal reactions to wartime necessities, this book argues that the party members systematically engineered pathbreaking laws to promote their own distinctive theory of political economy. The author aims to show that the Republicans were a dynamic progressive party who championed a specific type of economic growth.
