Reviews

Compelling and comprehensive . . . Shows Reconstruction to have been bloodier and deadlier than many would like to concede." —Library Journal

"An imaginative, well-written book . . . Correctly identifies conservative white resistance to Reconstruction as a counterrevolutionary movement willing to use any means necessary to eliminate Republican conrol of state and local government." —American Historical Review

"Rable has done a prodigious amount of digging in the sources. . . . A useful guide to the grimmer side of Reconstruction history." —Journal of American History

"Brings to us the simple and terrible reminder that there was no peace for blacks and their white supporters in Dixie . . . A well-written monograph that clarifies both the successes and failures of Reconstruction." —Journal of Southern History
