Eric Foner, Paul Heitsch (Narrator), "A Short History of Reconstruction, Updated Edition"

Newly Updated

From the "preeminent historian of Reconstruction" (New York Times Book Review),

a newly updated abridged edition of the prize-winning classic work on the post-Civil War period which shaped modern America.

"[A] smart book of enormous strengths."–Boston Globe

In this updated edition of the abridged Reconstruction, Eric Foner redefines how the post-Civil War period was viewed.

Reconstruction chronicles the way in which Americans—black and white—responded to the unprecedented changes unleashed by the war and the end of slavery. It addresses the quest of emancipated slaves' searching for economic autonomy and equal citizenship, and describes the remodeling of Southern society; the evolution of racial attitudes and patterns of race relations; and the emergence of a national state possessing vastly expanded authority and one committed, for a time, to the principle of equal rights for all Americans.

This "masterful treatment of one of the most complex periods of American history" (New Republic) remains the standard work on the wrenching post-Civil War period—an era whose legacy still reverberates in the United States today.

"Foner's book traces in rich detail the bitter course of the history of the South's failure to adjust to the revolution that brought the Civil War. Only by tracing that history and understanding can the region fully disenthrall itself even today."—Atlanta Constitution
