Description

The economic realities and class dynamics of the 1880’s in shore towns are the major topic of this unique Jersey shore history book. The author makes valid points to justify his opinion on the economy and segregation practices of the time. The Retreats of Reconstruction examines how decisions popularized the idea of “separate but equal” and explains in detail why the politics of consumption is critical to understanding the “long civil rights movement” and how that prolonged Jim Crow.
