The March 2013 issue of Reviews in American History is out. Full content is available to subscribers only, but here's a peak at some reviews of interest:

In "Constitutionalism in the American Civil War," Edward J. Blum reviews Mark E. Neely Jr., Lincoln and the Triumph of the Nation: Constitutional Conflict in the American Civil War (University of North Carolina Press, 2011).

Eileen Boris reviews Serena Mayeri, Reasoning from Race: Feminism, Law, and the Civil Rights Revolution (Harvard University Press, 2011) in an essay titled "Possibilities Lost and Found: Recovering the Intersectional Vision of Legal Feminism."

In "Rethinking Legal Liberalism: The Sexual Freedom Doctrine that Never Was," Leandra Zarnow takes up Marc Stein, Sexual Injustice: Supreme Court Decisions from Griswold to Roe (University of North Carolina Press, 2010).

In a reflective essay, titled "On Family Properties: Race, Real Estate, and the Exploitation of Black Urban America," Beryl Satter (Rutgers University-Newark) asks, "How can one elucidate the historical meaning of one's own family tragedy?" Her nine-year struggle with this question culminated in Family Properties: Race, Real Estate, and the Exploitation of Black Urban America (Picador, 2009)
