9780226923376: Reconstruction after the Civil War, Third Edition (The Chicago History of American Civilization)

Reconstruction after the Civil War explores the role of former slaves during this period in American history. Looking past popular myths and controversial scholarship, John Hope Franklin uses his astute insight and careful research to provide an accurate, comprehensive portrait of the era. His arguments concerning the brevity of the North’s occupation, the limited power wielded by former slaves, the influence of moderate southerners, the flawed constitutions of the radical state governments, and the downfall of Reconstruction remain compelling today. This new edition of Reconstruction after the Civil War also includes a foreword by Eric Foner and a perceptive essay by Michael W. Fitzgerald.

About the Author:

John Hope Franklin (1915–2009) was the James B. Duke Professor of History Emeritus at Duke University. He is the author of many books, including Mirror to America: The Autobiography of John Hope Franklin and Racial Inequality in America.

Review:

“John Hope Franklin’s Reconstruction: After the Civil War fills this yawning gap [in scholarship of this period] and with notable balance and judicious temper, tells an old story in a new light. . . . Franklin makes good his contentions at every point and provides a sorely needed restatement of what scholars now know about Reconstruction.”
(New York Times)

“[John Hope] Franklin used intellect and patience to surmount the barriers thrust in his way and went on to become one of the preeminent historians of his time.”
(U.S. News and World Report)

Book Description The University of Chicago Press, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 3rd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1957, the University of Chicago Press asked acclaimed best-selling historian Daniel J. Boorstin to oversee a series of accessible yet authoritative books that, together, would tell the whole history of the American people. The result, published over the course of nearly half a century, is the Chicago History of American Civilization series, which provides a nuanced and vibrant portrait of the United States from its inception through the twentieth century. Scholars across many disciplines contributed, and the series covers a broad range of topics, as disparate as the War of 1812, immigration, and American folklore. While the series is certainly eclectic, the books share both ambition and authority - they have been staples for teachers and general readers alike. The authors included in this series represent some of the greatest academic talents ever to turn their mind to the American past. Thus the University of Chicago Press is excited to offer new editions of three of the series best-known books. Reconstruction after the Civil War explores the role of former slaves during this period in American history. Looking past popular myths and controversial scholarship, John Hope Franklin uses his astute insight and careful research to provide an accurate, comprehensive portrait of the era.
