white titles spine; b/w. frontis. illust.; a volume in the 'American Problem Studies' series edited by Paul R. Baker; "the Civil War offers an example of crisis government without parallel in United States history. The nearest analogy perhaps is the Great Depression. The war posed fundamental questions. How did a constitutional democracy - granted express powers by the governed - function in crisis? In what ways did crisis assail the frame of government? To what extent did regular procedure prevail? What role did the President assume? How did political patronage serve as a weapon during the war? What role did political parties play? What was the character of the dominant party?
