Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
This volume of "The Drama of American History" series focuses upon the often misunderstood and overlooked period of post-Civil War Reconstruction. The Reconstruction era was a time within which the people and Government of the United States attempted to bind up the collective wounds suffered through four years of bloody sectional conflict. This book carefully highlights the key developments, personalities, and results of a confusing and, in many ways disgraceful, segment of American history. As the authors skillfully point out the Civil War was fought in such a manner that African-Americans were freed from bondage. That enormous social change held the seeds of great possibilities for the growth of the nation state. However, factors of politics, resentment, mismanagement, and hatred acted to create a system of oppression in the southern states. Over a period of thirty years, African-Americans found themselves living under the harsh oppression of segregation, Jim Crowism, sharecropping, and the brutality of the KKK. Simultaneously, the political failure of Reconstruction left the south stewing in its own juices. Economic and educational dissipation spawned by the shortsighted hatred endemic in punitive southern reactions to Reconstruction left that region of the country lagging behind other portions of the nation. Therefore, as is ably reconstituted in this excellent text, Reconstruction helped shape the future of this nation through its successes and failures. This book is a fine addition to the study of this confusing yet vital political and social epoch.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-The Colliers emphasize political history as opposed to social or cultural events in these clearly written books. Each volume concentrates on one theme and succeeds well. Civil War takes readers through strategies, battles, and outcomes and provides an analysis of factors leading up to the war. Reconstruction begins with Appomattox and includes current and former opinions about important persons and events of the time. Slavery includes background material, much detail on everyday life, and good interpretations of the events leading up to the Civil War. Each title includes many maps and full color as well as black-and-white photos and reproductions. Excellent additions to history collections.-Linda Beck, Indian Valley Public Library, Telford, PA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
