    Thomas L. Whigham (Author), Hendrick Kraay (Editor)
The Paraguayan War (1864-70) was the most extensive and profound interstate war ever fought in South America. It directly involved the four countries of Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay and took the lives of hundreds of thousands, combatants and non-combatants alike. While the war still stirs emotions on the southern continent, until today few scholars from outside the region have taken on the daunting task of analyzing the conflict. In this compilation of ten essays, historians from Canada, the United States, Germany, Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay address its many tragic complexities. Each scholar examines a particular facet of the war, including military mobilization, home-front activities, the war's effects on political culture, war photography, draft resistance, race issues, state formation, and the role of women in the war.The editors' introduction provides a balance to the many perspectives collected here while simultaneously integrating them into a comprehensible whole, thus making the book a compelling read for social historians and military buffs alike. Hendrik Kraay is an associate professor of history and political science at the University of Calgary. He is the editor of 'Afro-Brazilian Culture and Politics: Bahia, 1790s to 1900s' and the author of 'Race, State, and Armed Forces in Independence-Era Brazil: Bahia, 1790s-1840s'. Thomas L. Whigham is a professor of history at the University of Georgia. He is the author of 'The Paraguayan War, Volume 1: Causes and Early Conduct' (Nebraska 2002) and 'The Politics of River Trade: Tradition and Development in the Upper Plata, 1780-1870'.
