The Reconstruction Act of 1867 was one of the most controversial and far-reaching legislative measures ever enacted by an American Congress. The political motivations behind it, and other legislation regarding slavery, confiscation of Confederate property, Negro voting, and the readmission of the Southern states, have not been easy to define. David Donald uses the latest techiques of behavioral science, especially roll-call analysis, to suggest that a congressman's strength in his diestrict usually determined whether he voted with the radicals, moderates, or conservatives in the Republican Party.

Review:

"The author has made a careful and meaningful analysis of the actions of the Congresses and presents much of this material in table, graph, and chart form. Each faction and division within the factions, thus is clearly delineated. . . . Historians of this period--and others--would be well advised to take note of Donald's approach."-Library Journal
