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.

I learned a lot in reading this book! It is not an easy read and really gets into the weeds!

Outstanding! Well-organized, lucid, and extremely comprehensive, it is difficult to imagine a better or more complete one volume history of Reconstruction. It is indeed, as one historian wrote, history on the grand scale. However, the book is very detailed, so if you do not want to know everything about this period, read "A Short History of Reconstruction" by the same author!
