Uncommonly Savage: Civil War and Remembrance in Spain and the United States

by Paul D. Escott

“Reminds us that both losers and victors often had powerful motives to remember—and to forget.”—Caroline E. Janney, author of Remembering the Civil War

Spain and the United States both experienced extremely bloody and divisive civil wars that left lasting social and emotional wounds. In this book, award-winning historian Paul Escott compares how both countries processed their civil wars for generations afterward. He looks at the impact of civil war violence on memory, politics, and reconciliation. The first book of its kind on Spain and the United States, Uncommonly Savage is a pioneering and illuminating work.
