Javal,

I sure can.  Donald Sanger and Thomas Hay's James Longstreet is good for the overall facts, though some of their material is now outdated/contradicted by more modern study.  William Garret Piston's Lee's Tarnished Lieutenant:  James Longstreet and His Place in Southern History does a good job of showing how Longstreet's post-war actions helped turn him into the South's most hated man.  Jeffry Wert's James Longstreet:  The Confederacy's Most Controversial Soldier is probably the best all-around bio to date, though I do take a issue with some of his points.
