I recently received an interesting email from TOCWOC reader Alexandra.  Her friend from the Netherlands is looking for some good books on Confederate diplomacy.  She writes:

Hello, a friend in the Netherlands has asked me to find him a book to read on his vacation.  This is what he said he wants:
 
"Hello Alexandra,
 
I have been looking for information/a book about the American Confederation (The South) during the American Civil War.  You can't find any American history books here in the bookshops. I would like to know more about how the rest of the world dealed with that "new" state.  For instance which countries recognized that new state, who were their trading partners etc.
Mabey you can find something about this subject. I ussume these kind of books are only in English. I go on holiday the last week of September.


I've withheld the name of Alexandra's friend for privacy reasons, but his question is a good one.  Confederate diplomacy is not a subject I've spent much time on.  If you've read some books on Confederate foreign relations, Alexandra and I would be very interested in your answer!

Captain Crow,

Understood, but that's not what I'm asking.  Despite never being recognized officially, the Confederates did indeed send commissioners to foreign nations for that purpose.  I'm looking for books which discuss this aspect of the Confederate government.

I see, pardon me for misunderstanding your question....maybe I should actually read the entire post more carefully before I respond eh?;) The duke's suggested reading looks like it fills the bill exactly.
