Resisting Revisionism: Toward a Georgia Reconstruction Historiography

Abstract


Even my most recent published work on the Georgia project has neglected a thorough consideration of the work of living historians on Reconstruction, in Georgia and more generally, and has tended to downplay the revisionist strain of my work, both in my reading of Reconstruction historians and in my reading of Marxist theories of revolutions and modes of production.  Here I attempt to rectify that oversight by responding directly to some of the comments of historians who have reviewed my work.
