New relevance as the nation struggles over the memorials of the Civil War in places like Charlottesville, in its ongoing reckoning with white supremacy, this book is more important than ever, and has already attracted renewed attention

Updated material: this edition will be wholly updated and reworked, with dedicated researchers verifying what has changed and what hasn’t on the American landscape, including changes and updates across each chapter. It also includes a rewrite of the analysis and theory that Loewen uses to understand these issues
