Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This concise monograph proves that the historian can use quantitative techniques from the social sciences without sacrificing traditional concerns for literary craftsmanship, humanism, or methodical research in manuscripts and printed sources. The author rejects old stereotypic views which depicted black Reconstruction politicians as either venal or gullible. Holt's politicians are infinitely more complex, diverse, and therefore recognizably human. His study is particularly interesting in showing the effects of caste, class, and color on attitude and behavior. He has produced an excellent book, deserving of wide attention." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
