Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

With the Confederacy's defeat, Reconstruction seemed like the dawn of a new era to blacks and progressive whites, but it was not to be. "This invaluable, definitive history re-creates the post-Civil War period as a pivotal drama in which ordinary people get equal billing with politicians and wheelers and dealers," praised PW .
Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Review

''[A] splendid book . . . a compelling narrative . . . With this book, Mr. Foner becomes the preeminent historian of Reconstruction.'' --New York Times

''Long, brilliant, and stylish . . . [Reconstruction] is of signal importance . . . the most comprehensive and convincing account of the effort to build a racially democratic and just society from the fiery ruins of slavery.'' -- Los Angeles Times Book Review

''A heroic synthesis that should dominate the field . . . It gives nearly equal time to all the protagonists in the Reconstruction drama and recognizes how inextricably economic, political, social, and ideological issues are bound.'' --Washington Post Book World

''This is history written on a grand scale, a masterful treatment of one of the most complex periods of American history.'' --New Republic
