Prestigious journal reviews book co-authored by Peter Blanck
The December 2011 issue of The American Historical Review includes a book review of “Race, Ethnicity, and Disability: Veterans and Benefits in Post-Civil War America” (Cambridge University Press, 2010), authored by Burton Blatt Institute chairman and University Professor Peter Blanck and Mississippi College professor Larry Logue.
According to the review, written by Ellen Dwyer of Indiana University, “Larry M. Logue and Peter Blanck’s new book substantially advances our understanding of the health and welfare of African American soldiers during and after the Civil War.” Dwyer goes on to write: “Inspired by the growing field of disability studies, Logue and Blanck use multivariate statistical methods (logistic regression and hazards analysis) to capture the complicated ways in which race and ethnicity shaped the experiences of Civil War veterans and the responses of the United States Pension Bureau to their requests for assistance.”
