America's Civil War Magazine Reviews "Years of Change and Suffering"!

I'm pleased to announce that there is a kind review of Years of Change and Suffering: Modern Perspectives on Civil War Medicine (Edinborough Press, 2009) in the current (July 2010) issue of America's Civil War magazine! The magazine is now on newsstands and in subscribers' hands!

Excerpts:

"Yet despite the vast array of book son our nation's epic conflict, only a few thoroughly examine its medical aspects. Years of Change and Suffering helps fill that void.

"James Schmidt and Guy Hasegawa have pulled together a notable assortment of essays examining Civil War medicine and healing on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line..."


"...Years of Change and Suffering is an intrepid book that makes medical topics both interesting and readable for all audiences."

The review was written by Mr. Jason Emerson, who also reviewed my first book, Lincoln's Labels: America's Best Known Brands and the Civil War in the October 2009 issue of Civil War Times magazine. Thanks, Jason!

Remember - ALL ROYALTIES FROM Years of Change and Suffering ARE BEING DONATED TO CIVIL WAR MEDICAL HERITAGE PRESERVATION!

I check it out at the bookstore the other day. It is a generally positive review, but I think he significantly exaggerates the inaccessibility of the urology article (which was my favorite...Ha!).
