Editorial Reviews


"Provide[s] the reader with a panoramic view of the complexities of emancipation. . . . Key documents provide new insights into the mind and mood of the formerly enslaved regarding their new status. . . . A major new contribution to serious scholarship in the several related fields of Civil War, Reconstruction, and emancipation."
-Louisiana History

"[A] magnificent collection."
-Journal of Southern History

"One of the great editorial achievements of modern scholarship."
-Journal of Peasant Studies

"One cannot imagine scholars dealing with Reconstruction nationally, or the post-bellum history of any Southern state, without close attention to this work."
-H-Net Reviews


This volume definitely lives up to the very high standards set by its predecessors. The editors tackle a significant, complex set of issues, explicating them in a lucid, well-argued fashion and displaying a thorough command of the existing and voluminous relevant secondary literature. The quality of both the history and the writing here is impressive.--Eric Foner, Columbia University
--This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

More About the Author

I grew up among the farms and mountains of central Washington State and make my home now in the forests of New England. I am a graduate of the University of California, San Diego, and have spent many years living in different Deep South and Upper South communities. Far more a rural person than urban, I'm drawn to the countryside at personal as well as intellectual levels. To me, there's nothing more enjoyable than the sound of horses crunching on their hay in the early morning, or owls hooting in the early evening. It is a different quality of life, and one that deeply informs and shapes the kind of history I write.
