Reviews for The Second Founding: How the Civil War and Reconstruction Remade the Constitution

How are voter suppression, mass incarceration, and jeopardy to the American-born children of undocumented immigrants possible in the land of the free? Eric Foner brings his masterful knowledge of Reconstruction to illuminate the transformative constitutional amendments following the Civil War, and powerfully conveys the ongoing struggles over their meaning.--Martha Minow, 300th Anniversary University Professor, Harvard University, author of In Brown's Wake: Legacies of America's Educational Landmark Eric Foner has done it again: his concise, superbly researched, beautifully written history of the Civil War amendments chronicles a revolution in law and moral sensibility.--David W. Blight, Yale University, author of the Pulitzer prize-winning Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom
