In response to the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, I have added a new section to Virginia Bookshelf that identifies some books on these issues that go beyond Virginia. The listing is definately not comprehensive, but let me know if you have additions. Note that some books on these subjects are also discussed in the secctions above, and the 20th century Virginia section includes a number of books on the civil rights movement, including massive resistance in Virginia. This is a great time to learn the lessons of these challenging historical events.
