Publisher's Summary

The Reconstruction and Rise of Jim Crow describes the fallout of the Civil War, whose aftermath left the United States South angry and poor. This book details the struggles to decide how to deal with the newly freed slaves, through the years of Reconstruction, Jim Crow, sharecropping, and segregation. The storyline also sets the stage for the country’s next battle, which is between the Jim Crow laws and the 14th and 15th Amendments.

Excellent quality, but lacking in quantity

The publishers of this audiobook delivered a well-written and cogent story for people like me who want a big-picture idea about this period. But as I'm paying a whole credit, I wish they would provide this book along with another title of their American history series. Please think about it!

Pleasantly surprised

This is a fairly short read. Very informative in regards to what happened after the Civil War.
I learned in this book how reconstruction lead to Jim Crow laws.
The authors did a good job in telling an honest and unbiased perspective of this time in American history.

Sad but interesting history

I really appreciate how this piece went into detail as to the "why" of certain actions and the "how" it affected not only blacks, but poor whites as well as the country as a whole.

I learned some of this in high school, but not nearly enough of this book had to offer. So much information.

Informative

Great introduction, looking forward to understanding to digging into the topic some more. Fortunately we had so many willing to fight, and die, for freedom.

Good Historical Info for Understanding

the book had good historical facts and a logical progression for what has happen and how we got to the state of social, economic, and political issue. Should be used in schools and colleges for sure.

Good summary but author fails

The authors give proper credit to the republicans that works so hard to advance civil rights in the south but hides the name of the party that stood in their way by inaccurately describing them as “conservatives.” Not doubt if question the authors would hide upon verbal nuances of the times.
