Reviews


"Thoughtful, well written, and thoroughly researched, it is a work of disciplined, committed scholarship that is likely to inspire imitation....It represents the sort of scholarly advocacy that honors the historian's calling."--The New Republic


"A finely wrought narrative, but much more--a troubling commentary on conflict, consensus, paternalism, and gentility, which carries far beyond Greensboro....There is a boldness in this book which is rare in the profession....It makes us think beyond its boundaries."--Howard Zinn, The Yale Review


"Social history at its best, portraying the events that led up to the sit-ins and the disappointments that came after, and arguing that these confrontations were vital for any real change."--The New York Times Book Review


"Undoubtedly the best case study on the Civil Rights movement."--Mark Kornbluh, Washington University
