"Integrating political and cultural history, Road to Reunion analyzes and celebrates the sectional reconciliation of the North and South in the late nineteenth century. Blaming Republican bloody shirt politicians in the North for keeping sectional animosity alive longer than necessary, Buck was sympathetic to the South's bitterness over the alleged excesses and failures of Reconstruction. Driven by an impulse to nationalism and uninterested in the racial and civil rights legacies of Reconstruction, Buck made his major contribution by analyzing how white southern writers--in fiction and journalism--had transformed their bitter memories of war into an enduring pathos, which proved especially effective among northern readers: it became a means of evading conflict and of forging reconciliation." - ANB .
