Reviews of Reconstruction: America's Unfinished Revolution, 1863-1877

Overall customer rating: 5.000

Thorough and nuanced.

by jboleNC on Apr 1, 2010

This book is excellent for someone doing research or wanting a deep, detailed account of Reconstruction. It's no light read! Not to say it isn't accessible and interestingly written. Foner carefully addresses a number of other approaches to what turns out to be a controversial subject. Having done that, he lays out a very convincing view about how to look at this critical period in our history.

Eric Foner is a historian one can trust. He's well versed in all the versions of reconstruction there are - and explains that issue and the sources he draws on in his intro. Thorough treatment of the subject, with due respect to the survivors of slavery and white supremacy. Very readable.
