Reconstruction: A Very Short Introduction Oxford University Press - forthcoming in 2018

No period of American life has been more difficult to understand or more resistant to untangling than the era of Reconstruction after the Civil War (1865-1877). In this sharp, brief introduction, Allen C. Guelzo sums up a wealth of new scholarship on the period, provides a clear narrative of Reconstruction's political and judicial events, and offers a radical new interpretation of Reconstruction as a "pure bourgeois revolution."
