"Cimbala and Miller offer an extraordinary contribution to the historiography of Reconstruction by demonstrating its enormous diversity. Often misunderstood, Reconstruction was a time of defining liberty and for whom, of rebuilding physically and psychically, of changing and enduring. This collection of sound, thoughtful essays provides an extensive examination of this significant and complex period of U.S. history. A must-read for anyone examining Reconstruction, this book shows that the great task still remains before us."-Orville Vernon Burton
". . . An impressive array of new scholarship on Reconstruction that explores gender and race relations, the politics of Reconstruction, and historical memory. . . Recommended."-Choice
"Cimbala and Miller have edited an important book that will help historians understand both Reconstruction and its connection to the larger Civil War era."-Andrew L. Slap, American Historical Review
