Volume 3 in the estimable Garland series contains 20 scholarly essays that focus on the postwar conflict between southern blacks and whites over control of land and labor. They explore the importance of land to the freedmen, federal policy with respect to black landownership, and blacks' success in acquiring land. They also examine the evolution of sharecropping and other systems of agricultural labor, paying due attention to regional variations, the role of blacks in reshaping plantation society, and the impact of labor arrangements on black life.
