Summary

This history attempts to provide "a coherent, comprehensive modern account of Reconstruction. . . . The first {theme of the narrative} is the centrality of the black experience. . . . A second purpose of this study is to trace the ways in which Southern society as a whole was remodeled, and to do so without neglecting . . . local variations. . . . The evolution of racial attitudes and patterns of race relations, and the complex interconnection of race and class in the postwar South, form a third theme. . . . The book's fourth theme is the emergence . . . of a national state possessing . . . expanded authority and a . . . commitment to . . . equal rights. . . . Finally, this study {aims to} examine how changes in the North's economy and class structure affected Reconstruction." Preface,Bibliography, and Index are included.

Winner of more than five prestigious awards, including the Los Angeles Times Book Award. "This generation's defining interpretation of this most misunderstood passage in the nation's history. " -- Wall Street Journal
