For summaries of scholarly trends in the writings on Reconstruction see Richard O. Curry, "The Civil War and Reconstruction, 1861-1877: A Critical Overview of Recent Trends and Interpretations," Civil War History, XX ( September, 1974), 215-38; Bernard A. Weisberger, "The Dark and Bloody Ground of Reconstruction Historiography," Journal of Southern History, XXV ( November, 1959), 427-47; Robert Reid, "Changing Interpretations of the Reconstruction Period in Alabama, " Alabama Review, XXVII ( October, 1974), 263-81. Carl N. Degler, The Other South: Southern Dissenters in the Nineteenth Century ( New York, 1974), devotes more attention to the scalawag than have historians of Reconstruction; Chapters V and VI summarize much of what has appeared in state historical journals and in unpublished dissertations about the scalawag. Kenneth M. Stampp, The Era of Reconstruction, 1865-1877 ( New York, 1965), 156-65, has the fullest discussion of the scalawag in any revisionist survey of Reconstruction. Other recent surveys which touch briefly on the scalawag are Allen W. Trelease, Reconstruction: The Great Experiment ( New York, 1971), 107-08; John Hope Franklin, Reconstruction: After the Civil War ( Chicago, 1961), 98-103; William R. Brock, Conflict and Transformation: The United States, 1844-1877 ( Middlesex, England, 1973), 375-76. Biographies of individual scalawags include Lillian A. Pereyra, James Lusk Alcorn, Persistent Whig ( Baton Rouge, 1966); Donald Bridgman Sanger, James Longstreet: Soldier, Politician, Officeholder, and Writer ( Gloucester, Mass., 1968); Lillian Adele Kibler , Benjamin F. Perry, South Carolina Unionist ( Durham, N.C., 1946); E. Merton Coulter, William G. Brownlow, Fighting Parson of the Southern Highlands (Chapel Hill, 1937).
