The Cause of All Nations Don Doyle talked about his book The Cause of All Nations: An International History of the American Civil War, in which he recounts the global reaction to the Civil War. In his book, the author reports that the North and South engaged foreign diplomats to promote their cause, the North to prevent foreign interference and the South to gain support. He also said the war viewed as a test of the democratic model, with many monarchies hoping for a dissolution of the Union, which would temper other democratic movements around the world. Professor Doyle spoke with Sidney Blumenthal, former aide to President Clinton. close
