About the author

George Louis Kline was born in Galesburg, Illinois, on March 3, 1921. World War II interrupted his studies at Boston University, where he had matriculated in 1938. After the war, he continued his education at Columbia University, earning his A.B. in 1947, his M.A. in 1948, and his Ph.D. in 1950 with a dissertation called "Spinoza in Soviet Philosophy." He taught at the University of Chicago and at Columbia before joining the Bryn Mawr College faculty in 1959. He was tenured in 1960, was named the Milton C. Nahm Professor of Philosophy in 1981, and retired in 1991. He was president of the Hegel Society of America from 1984 to 1986 and of the Metaphysical Society of America from 1985 to 1986. Who's Who in America listed him first in 1970 and many times annually thereafter. He died in Anderson, South Carolina, on October 21, 2014.
Kline was a recognized expert not only in Russian philosophy, Spinoza, and Hegel, but also in Whitehead, Vico, Marx, Sartre, Kierkegaard, ethics, the philosophy of religion, Soviet ideology, and Russian literature. He was fluent in French, German, Russian, Spanish, and Italian, and competent in Latin, Greek, Polish, and Portuguese. He was particularly interested in the relation of the precision - or imprecision - of technical terms in these languages to the content of thought and was keen to pick out imprecisions, ambiguities, or nuances that would undermine, weaken, or impair systematic, rigorous, or coherent thought. He translated much of the poetry of Joseph Brodsky and contributed in no small way to Brodsky being awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1987.

Kant argued that fundamental concepts of the human mind structure human experience, that reason is the source of morality, that aesthetics arises from a faculty of disinterested judgment, that space and time are forms of our understanding, and that the world as it is "in-itself" is unknowable. Kant took himself to have effected a Copernican revolution in philosophy, akin to Copernicus' reversal of the age-old belief that the sun revolved around the earth.
The second episode in this award-winning trilogy impressively shows how the Union and Confederacy, slowly and inexorably, reconciled themselves to an all-out war—an epic struggle for freedom.

In Terrible Swift Sword, Bruce Catton tells the story of the Civil War as never before—of two turning points which changed the scope and meaning of the war. First, he describes how the war slowly but steadily got out of control. This would not be the neat, short, “limited” war both sides had envisioned. And then the author reveals how the sweeping force of all-out conflict changed the war’s purpose, in turning it into a war for human freedom.

It was not initially a war against slavery. Instead, this was, Mr. Lincoln kept insisting, a fight to reunite the United States. At first, it was not even much of a fight. Cautious generals; inexperienced, incompetent, or jealous administrators; shortages of good people and supplies; excess of both gloom and optimism, kept each side from swinging into decisive action. As the buildup began, there were maddening delays. The earliest engagements were halting and inconclusive. After these first tests at arms, reputations began to crumble. Buell, Halleck, Beauregard Albert Sidney Johnston. Failed to drive ahead—for reasons good and bad. General McClellan (impaled in these pages on the arrogant words of his letters) captured more imaginations than enemies, and continued to accept serious over estimates of Confederate strength while becoming more and more fatally estranged from his own government.
"A magnificent stylist . . . a first-rate historian. Familiarity with subject matter resulting from many years of study and narrative talents exceeding those of any other Civil War historian enable him to move along swiftly and smoothly and produce a story that is informative, dramatic, and absorbingly interesting." —Dr. Bell I. Wiley, after reading the manuscript of Never Call Retreat

The final volume of Bruce Catton's monumental Centennial History of the Civil War traces the war from Fredericksburg through the succeeding grim and relentless campaigns to the Courthouse at Appomattox and the death of Lincoln.

This is an eloquent study of the bitterest years of the war when death slashed the country with a brutality unparalleled in the history of the United States. Through the kaleidoscope tone and temper of the struggle, two men, different in stature, but similar in dedication to their awesome tasks, grappled with the burden of being leaders both in politics and war. In the north Lincoln remained resolute in the belief that a house divided against itself could not stand. His determination and uncanny vision of the destiny of the country and its people far transcended the plaguing tensions, fears, and frustrations of his cabinet and Congress. Mr. Lincoln’s use of vast resources is brilliantly contrasted to Davis’s valiant struggle for political and economic stability in a hopelessly fragmented and underdeveloped south. Though Davis never lacked for spirit and dedication, his handicaps were severe. This was not a war to be won by static ideals and romanticism. As Mr. Lincoln managed to expand and intensify the ideals that sustained the Northern war effort, Mr. Davis was never able to enlarge the South’s. This was a war to be won by flexibility in though, strength in supplies, and battles. And so they were fought––Fredericksburg, The Wilderness, Chancellorsville, Vicksburg, Gettysburg.
