Reconstruction: America's Unfinished Revolution, 1863-1877
This "masterful treatment of one of the most complex periods of American history" (New Republic) made history when it was originally published in 1988. It redefined how Reconstruction was viewed by historians and people everywhere in its chronicling of how Americans -- black and white -- responded to the unprecedented changes unleashed by the war and the end of slavery. This "smart book of enormous strengths" (Boston Globe) has since gone on to become the classic work on the wrenching post-Civil War period -- an era whose legacy reverberates still today in the United States.

This book is indoctrination at best. The book uses terms such as "Conservative" the idea of which came out of England in 1790 and "Republican" which wasn't established until 1854 to describe people before these times which clearly is an attempt to label with opinion instead of fact. How this was even considered legitimate is unbelievable.
