'This diverse collection of nine essays examining the short and long term dimensions of Reconstruction offers a rich variety of perspectives for this critical period's impact on our nation's history and contemporary American life.' -- Robert Kenzer, University of Richmond, US 'Julian Maxwell Hayter and George R. Goethals have edited an outstanding collection of essays dealing with the repeated efforts to forge a more inclusive republic in the decades after the American Civil War. In elegantly-crafted pieces ranging from the war years to the heights of the first Reconstruction era, and from the 1960s to the troubled present, these established scholars weave together often-forgotten stories of struggles for racial justice. Tragically, many of them remind us that old victories are rarely permanent, and that the fight continues. An important volume for all studying the long arc of Reconstructions in America.' -- Douglas R. Egerton, author of The Wars of Reconstruction: The Brief, Violent History of America's Most Progressive Era
