North America Vol I & Vol Ii (eBook)
Sobre o livro
Anthony Trollope visited the US five times in total. He went there during the early civil war for this book. The war had not been in his plans, but as it happened at the time, Trollop covered the war in this book. Not as a battle reporter but as an observer of effects on the places that he visited. In the process he comes out as a first class reporting talent. The introduction has interesting thoughts about the question of the British neutrality in the civil war. Can that be compared to an American neutrality, hypothetically, during the 'mutiny' of 1857 in India? Trollop thinks not. That would, says AT, be more comparable to a British acknowledgment of an uprising of black Americans.
