In Virginia, Horwitz joins a band of 'hardcore' reenactors who crash-diet to accomplish the hollow-eyed glance of starved Confederates; in Kentucky, he witnesses Klan rallies and demands race struggle sparked by way of the killing of a white guy who brandishes a insurgent flag; at Andersonville, he unearths that the prison's commander, performed as a warfare legal, is now exalted as a martyr and hero; and within the book's climax, Horwitz takes a marathon trek from Antietam to Gettysburg to Appomattox within the corporation of Robert Lee Hodge, an eccentric pilgrim who dubs their odyssey the 'Civil Wargasm.'

Mutation, sexual recombination and selection are important evolutionary forces acting at various stages of the interaction. Invasion and attack by a pathogen results in reduced plant fitness. Diffuse coevolution is more common, denoting interactions in which related pest species attack a range of plants that share similar chemical defenses. The distinction between pairwise and diffuse coevolution becomes more complex when genes involved in ‘gene-for-gene’ interactions are considered. , ranging from mutualism to parasitism (selection mosaics, or genotype by genotype by environment, or G×G×E interactions); geographic variation in the intensity of coevolutionary selection, resulting in coevolutionary hotpots and coldspots; and trait remixing resulting from metapopulation dynamics, random genetic drift, gene flow.
