Publisher's Summary

This pioneering work was the first full-length study of the role black Americans played in the crucial period after the Civil War, when the slaves had been freed and the attempt was made to reconstruct American society.
Hailed at the time, Black Reconstruction in America has justly been called a classic.

Disturbing and important.

This is long but necessarily so. Full of primary sources illustrating the best and worst of our history. Very painful but worth it. We need to know what really happened.

The textbook you should have had in high school.

Long. Yes. Repetitive in some parts. Yes. However, all of this is necessary, because if you use this as a reference, as encyclopedic, as the canon, then repetion ensures details come with your every query. This is the book that every library public and household should have.
