    The Author was founder of the Department of Political Science at

    The Author was founder of the Department of Political Science at Columbia University, and the book gives important insight into how people thought about reconstruction in his time and their theories of what Reconstruction could and should mean. A thematic issue is the question of whether the states remained in the Union after secession. The legal fiction may differ from the political reality, and it is important in how the actors' theories accorded to the realities. One quote shows the depths of the author's racism: "But there is no question, now [1906], that Congress did a monstrous thing, and committed a great political error, if not a sin, in the creation of this new electorate. It was a great wrong to civilization to put the white race of the South under the domination of the negro race."
