i agree, the rise of non-military civil war period history is very good.
 
another poster mentioned the apparent dearth of new publications.
 
my take is that there are many relevant new books, just not as many on the period's military aspects.
 
the field now views reconstruction as part of the civil war.
 
this broadens our understanding of cause and effect and that hostilities were not necessarily only between armies and only for four years...
