Our Review

This provides an excellent account of Reconstruction distilled to its essence. Revisionist historians will take the topic and bury the essence under a confusing avalanche of political maneuverings, Constitutional arguments, impeachment issues, and human rights polemics, but this separates the incidentals from the power play behind it all and puts it into a nutshell under the glaring light of Truth. Excellent and concise.
