Well written, well researched and I was enlightened on the topic! I recommend this book to anyone interested in spiritualism or the civil war, and definitely anyone that is interested in both must read this!

Has some really useful information... but its mostly just a few interview clips with some radio interviews. I was using it for research and did not learn anything new. Fun to watch as a fan though

3.0 out of 5 stars Check it out!, December 8, 2010
"Half Slave and Half Free" discusses American life during the antebellum era. Specifically, he discusses the economies of both the north and the south. He looks at slave labor and free labor. He also looks at the differences between the North and the South and what lead up to the war.

In all honesty, I thought this was a good book and an important read. It was perfect for a classroom setting (which is where I read it). However, I did get a little bored with all the statistics. I can't help it, I am by no means a number person. But the interesting parts of the book far out number the times I was a little bored by it. This was a vital book in understanding what lead up to the Civil War. And it was a valuable source for my term paper.

Simply, Levine's work is thoroughly researched and well written. It is worth checking out!

Reforging the White Republic: Race, Religion, and American Nationalism, 1865--1898 (Conflicting Worlds: New Dimensions of the American Civil War)
by Edward J. Blum
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly unique., December 8, 2010
Blum's "Reforging the White Republic" is a truly uniquely written book. It provides an in-depth argument about what happened after the Civil War. The Nation was so divided and it could not just go back to antebellum America again. Blum describes how the Nation united again. Further, Blum looks at how the northern and southern whites united. After Reconstruction white supremacy reigned and Blum explains how that happened.

Blum is a gifted historian and writer. The book is the perfect blend of informative and entertaining. There is no way that once you start reading this book, you don't become totally enthralled! Okay there is one way, but the ONLY way is that you would have to be completely uninterested in the subject! This is the perfect book for history buffs, civil war buffs, religion buffs, civil rights buffs, or someone simply just interested in learning.

So how does the North and the South find a way to reconcile!?!? Read "Reforging the White Republic" and find out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading!, September 30, 2009
The Kingdom of Matthias, is definately worth a read. If it is for school or your personal interest you will find it worth your time. It tells an interesting tale that you normally aren't educated about. I never heard one word about this subject until I had to read the book for class.

The authors mix history of the time with the story of Robert Matthews and his following. Although the historical background is a really slow read, the authors write about the characters so well. They really show you that you can have compassion for them, while also thinking they are totally insane.

The point is you won't be sorry you read this book.
