Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungFitzgerald traces how the rivalry between these black factions yielded a startlingly antagonistic political scene that steadily escalated into physical conflict. Though Fitzgerald's book examines the local level, its implications are far reaching. It demonstrates that the Republican factionalism that helped doom Reconstruction went beyond competing cliques of white officeholders. Blacks too were partially responsible for the failure of Reconstruction. Boldly challenging reigning theories about the nature of post-Civil War politics, Urban Emancipation will spark historical debate for years to come.
