Summary
As one of the most complexly divisive periods in American history, Reconstruction has been the subject of a rich scholarship. Historians have studied the period's racial views, political maneuverings, divisions between labor and capital, debates about women's suffrage, and of course its struggle between freed slaves and their former masters. yet, on each of these fronts scholarship has attended overwhelmingly to the eastern United States, especially the South, thereby neglecting important transnational linkages. This volume, examines Reconstruction's global connections and contexts in ways that, while honoring the field's accomplishments, move it beyond its southern focus. The volume brings together prominent and emerging scholars to showcase the deepening interplay between scholarship on Reconstruction and on America's place in world history. Through these essays, this book engages two dynamic fields of study to the benefit of them both. By demonstrating that the South and the eastern United States were connected to other parts of the globe in complex and important ways, the volume challenges scholars of Reconstruction to look outward. Likewise, examining these same connections will compel transnationally minded scholars to reconsider Reconstruction as a pivotal era in the shaping of the United States' relations with the rest of the world
