Jones studies the crisis in Anglo-American relations during the
Civil War and its impact on the South's attempt to win foreign
support during the crucial years of 1861 and 1862. He argues that
the central issue was the possibility that Britain would grant
diplomatic recognition to the Confederacy, a move that would have
legitimized secession and undermined the Constitution.
