Reconstruction: America's Unfinished Revolution, 1863-1877
Harper Collins, 2002 M02 5 - 736 páginas

This "smart book of enormous strengths" (Boston Globe) has since gone on to become the classic work on the wrenching post-Civil War period -- an era whose legacy reverberates still today in the United States.
