Reconstruction and the New South, 1865-1913
50 Essential Books
Southern Reader's Guide
Clyde N. Wilson
The third installment of Dr. Clyde N. Wilson’s Southern Reader’s Guides distills more than a half century of scholarship into identifying and describing 50 essential books on the topic of the Reconstruction (1865-1876) and the New South (1877-1913). Dr. Wilson, Emeritus Distinguished Professor of History of the University of South Carolina, was editor of the highly-praised Papers of John C. Calhoun and is the author or editor of more than 20 other books, and over 700 articles, essays, and reviews in a variety of books and journals, scholarly and popular. He is considered by many to be the greatest living historian of the South. If you want to understand Reconstruction and the New South without wasting your time on 3rd string authors and the p.c. infected pseudo-history coming out of the modern academy, there is no greater guide than Dr. Wilson.
