Allen C. Guelzo is the leading authority on the Civil War, Reconstruction, and Lincoln, and three-time winner of the Lincoln Prize
He provides a new perspective on Reconstruction, showing that it did not take place only in the South but also in the West
He discusses other "reconstructions" that occurred in parallel with the political one: in philosophy, literature, law, and economy
This concise history presents a careful narrative balance between political events at the center of Reconstruction (in Washington, D.C.) and separate streams of political, economic, and social conflict in the Southern states
