'The New York City Draft Riots' catalyst for change is an exciting study of a volatile and much neglected period of American history. Starting with the riots initial causes, the book discusses the social, political and racial significance of the riots on New York during the period and the drastic changes which followed. Using a wealth of primary and secondary sources it is revealed how much of today's New York can be traced back to a single period of five days almost one hundred and fifty years ago, including the establishment of Harlem and the continuation of the 'Federal vs. National' decision-making debate. Available for the first time in paperback, this study discusses what caused such civil unrest and thinks about the significance of such a violent period of American History.

    "An important, long awaited study!" As someone with a keen interest in the Civil War it has always amazed me that nobody has sat down to write an accessible study of the New York Draft Riots. Burgess does just that and without all the jargon and filler of conventional history texts. To the point, factual and extremely well researched this is an essential piece of reading for anyone interested in our nations history. Well written and worthy of anyones time.
