Forever free : the story of emancipation and Reconstruction by Eric Foner( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 2,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new examination of the years of Emancipation and Reconstruction during and immediately following the Civil War emphasizes the era's political and cultural meaning for today's America. Historian Foner overturns numerous assumptions growing out of the traditional understanding of the period, which is based almost exclusively on white sources and shaped by (often unconscious) racism. He presents the period as a time of determination, especially on the part of recently emancipated black Americans, to put into effect the principles of equal rights and citizenship for all. He makes clear how, by war's end, freed slaves built on networks of church and family in order to exercise their right of suffrage as well as gain access to education, land, and employment, and shows that the birth of the Ku Klux Klan and renewed acts of racial violence were retaliation for the progress made by blacks soon after the war.--From publisher description
Beyond the lines : pictorial reporting, everyday life, and the crisis of gilded-age America by Joshua Brown( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today video clips and photojournalism dominate our news sources, but in the second half of the nineteenth century, the pictorial newspaper brought events and personalities alive for a hungry public. In this wonderfully illustrated book, Joshua Brown shows that the wood engravings in the illustrated newspapers of Gilded Age America were more than quaint predecessors to our own sophisticated media. As he tells the history and traces the influence of Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper, with relevant asides on Harper's Weekly, the New York Daily Graphic and others, Brown recaptures the complexity and richness of pictorial reporting. He finds these images to be significant barometers for gauging how the general public perceived pivotal events and crises - the Civil War, Reconstruction, important labor battles, and more - and uses them as a rewarding source for understanding the era."--Jacket

U.S. overseas expansion at the turn of the century was not just the concern of government and business; it was the stuff of everyday life. Savage Acts tells the story of how the Philippine War and American domestic culture forged a new U.S. foreign policy. Soldiers' letters, world's fair exhibitions, early films, travel guides, and heroic monuments expressed the growing sense of national mission based on ideas of racial superiority. But the victory of imperialist policies was not inevitable; expansion and the way it was expressed in the daily life of the nation sparked opposition both at home and abroad
