diplomacy, and domestic politics that it was But if a compulsion to concentrate excessively on the spectacular bits and pieces of the conflict has been an endemic problem among academics and writers, this volume is an antidote Daughan not only thoroughly illuminates the emotion triggering events of the conflict he also adds the background that connects the highlights That background includes, for example, the American and British domestic politics and diplomacy, which were continuously both cause and effect in the process.
