Part 1 of this series discussed some recent books on American secession and a second American civil war. In Part 2 of this series, I laid out some factors of concern when looking at the potential for a U.S. national split-up. In this final installment, I want to detail some of why I think a second American Civil War is unlikely to occur.
Civil War talk is de rigueur this year in the United States. In a year that's seen the release of two popular books about the prospects for civil war in the U.S., I think it's time to look at what this means and how likely it could be for America.
