With a New Introduction From the "preeminent historian of Reconstruction" (New York Times Book Review), a newly updated edition of the prizewinning classic work on the post-Civil War period that shaped modern America Eric Foner's "masterful treatment of one of the most complex periods of American history" (New Republic) redefined how the post–Civil War period was viewed. Reconstruction chronicles the way in which Americans—black and white—responded to the unprecedented changes unleashed by the war and the end of slavery. It addresses the quest of emancipated slaves searching for economic autonomy and equal citizenship, and describes the remodeling of Southern society, the evolution of racial attitudes and patterns of race relations, and the emergence of a national state possessing vastly expanded authority and committed, for a time, to the principle of equal rights for all Americans. This "smart book of enormous strengths" (Boston Globe) remains the standard work on the wrenching post–Civil War period—an era whose legacy still reverberates in the United States today.

It has long been acknowledged that the death penalty in the United States of America has been shaped by the country’s history of slavery and racial violence, but this book considers the lesser-explored relationship between the two practices’ respective abolitionist movements. The book explains how the historical and conceptual links between slavery and capital punishment have both helped and hindered efforts to end capital punishment. The comparative study also sheds light on the nature of such efforts, and offers lessons for how death penalty abolitionism should proceed in future. Using the history of slavery and abolition, it is argued that anti-death penalty efforts should be premised on the ideologies of the radical slavery abolitionists.

Work has always been central to the African American experience. Whether as slaves or freedmen, African Americans have struggled to gain economic opportunity. For Jobs and Freedom: Race and Labor in America since 1865 analyzes the position of African American workers in the U.S. economy and social order over the past century and a half. This comprehensive study focuses on black workers' efforts to gain equal rights in the workplace and deals extensively with organized labor's complex and tumultuous relationship with African Americans. Highlighting the problems and opportunities that have characterized efforts to build biracial unions and forge a strong labor−civil rights political coalition, it is an authoritative treatment on the subject of race and labor in modern America.

Vor mehr als 250 Jahren wurde das Reich errichtet, in dem King Cotton herrscht. Krieg, Sklaverei und Ausbeutung standen an seiner Wiege. Während fremde Kulturen rücksichtslos zerschlagen wurden, häuften Händler im Zusammenspiel mit der Staatsgewalt enorme Vermögen an. Ein neues ökonomisches Prinzip begann seinen globalen Siegeszug. Sven Beckert, Professor für Geschichte an der Harvard-Universität, schildert die Geschichte des Kapitalismus im Spiegel eines Produktes, das heute jeder von uns am Leibe trägt – der Baumwolle. Die Geschichte des Kapitalismus gehört zu den spannendsten Themen der aktuellen Geschichtswissenschaft. Fast immer aber geht es dabei um einzelne Epochen oder Regionen. Sven Beckert wagt in seinem brillanten Buch erstmals eine übergreifende Darstellung, die anhand einer einzigen Ware höchst anschaulich zeigt, wie der Kapitalismus entsteht, sich gleichsam einübt und nach und nach die Lebensverhältnisse und Arbeitsbedingungen, ja das Schicksal der Menschen überall auf der Welt seinen Bewegungsgesetzen unterwirft. Das Resultat ist ein ebenso verstörendes wie erhellendes Buch darüber, wie unsere globale Welt von heute entstanden ist.

Carby A modern classic about power and the making of history, with a new foreword by a prominent scholar Placing the West’s failure to acknowledge the most successful slave revolt in history alongside denials of the Holocaust and the debates over the Alamo and Christopher Columbus, Michel-Rolph Trouillot offers a stunning meditation on how power operates in the making and recording of history. Presented here with a new foreword by renowned scholar Hazel V. Carby, Silencing the Past is an indispensable analysis of the silences in our historical narratives, of what is omitted and what is recorded, what is remembered and what is forgotten, and what these silences reveal about inequalities of power.

In 1877, a decade after the Civil War, not only was the United States gripped by a deep depression, but the country was also in the throes of nearly unimaginable violence and upheaval marking the end of the brief period known as Reconstruction and a return to white rule across the South. In the wake of the contested presidential election of 1876, white supremacist mobs swept across the South, killing and driving out the last of the Reconstruction state governments. A strike involving millions of railroad workers turned violent as it spread from coast-to-coast, and for a moment seemed close to toppling the nation’s economic structure. In 1877, celebrated historian Michael Bellesiles reveals that the fires of that fated year also fueled a hothouse of cultural and intellectual innovation. Bellesiles relates the story of 1877 not just through dramatic events, but also through the lives of famous and little-known Americans.
