The Effete Liberal Book Club

More

Guys, your host Michigan Reader was nice enough to send over a possible schedule for the book club. (We're reading Eric Foner's Reconstruction.) I, in turn, dropped the ball and neglected to post the schedule. My sense is this will have to be adjusted. Nevertheless here it is, we can talk below about how we should adjust it.



--Friday, June 22: Preface and Chapters 1 and 2 (The World the War Made and Rehearsals for Reconstruction) 


--Friday, June 29: Chapters 3 and 4 (The Meaning of Freedom and Ambiguities of Free Labor)

--Week off for July 4th 

--Friday, July 12: Chapters 5 and 6 (The Failure of Presidential Reconstruction and The Making of Radical Reconstruction) 

--Friday, July 20: Chapters 7 and 8 (Blueprints for a Republican South and Reconstruction: Political and Economic) 

--Friday, July 27: Chapters 9 and 10 (The Challenge of Enforcement and The Reconstruction of the North) 

--Friday, August 3: Chapters 11 and 12 and Epilogue
