Reviews

Not only an important contribution to the history of the struggle for civil rights; it also enlarges our general understanding of contemporary politics and culture.--Abigail Thernstrom "New Republic "
To anyone who would understand SNCC, this is an essential book.--James Polk "Newsday "
This splendid history of SNCC has successfully captured the dynamic interplay of two parallel but contradictory elements... This is a well-researched, balanced, and analytical assessment of the history of a primarily black student activist group that, with all its failings, made its special contribution to the political awakening of American blacks and to the changing of American institutions and practices.--Abraham Holtzman "American Political Science Review "
In Clayborne Carson SNCC has at last found a scholar capable of probing its radical and fractious nature in a manner both sympathetic and prudently critical... Students of social protest will be deeply in the author's debt for years to come.--Francis M. Wilnoit "American Historical Review "
