Description:
How did America recover after its years of civil war? How did freed men and women, former slaves, respond to their newly won freedom? David Roediger's radical history redefines the idea of freedom after the jubilee, using fresh sources and texts to build on the leading historical accounts of emancipation and Reconstruction. Reinstating ex-slaves' own 'freedom dreams' in constructing these histories, he creates a masterful account of the emancipation and its ramifications on a whole host of day-to-day concerns for whites and blacks alike, including property relations, gender roles and labour.
