Reconstruction: America's Unfinished Revolution, 1863-1877
Harper Collins, 2002 M02 5 - 736 páginas
This "masterful treatment of one of the most complex periods of American history" (New Republic) made history when it was originally published in 1988. It redefined how Reconstruction was viewed by historians and people everywhere in its chronicling of how Americans -- black and white -- responded to the unprecedented changes unleashed by the war and the end of slavery. 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.

Good book but hard reading Wish I had a better knowledge of reconstruction politics. Spot read after a bit, but full of information. Will save and try to reread after reading more on Pres.Johnson. Leer comentario completo
