Book Discussion on A Dangerous Stir

Here’s Professor Mark Summers of the University of Kentucky discussing his book, A Dangerous Stir: Fear, Paranoia, and the Making of Reconstruction. This is a book I’m definitely going to read at some point.

The video’s description reads, “Mark Wahlgren Summers talked about his book A Dangerous Stir: Fear, Paranoia, and the Making of Reconstruction, in which he presents his observations on Reconstruction policy following the Civil War. He said Americans feared another Civil War and were uncertain of how the government would function.”
