Reviews


A major contribution to our understanding of the political and cultural history of African Americans--indeed, of America itself.
--Henry Louis Gates Jr., Alphonse Fletcher University Professor, Harvard University

Superb new history . . . elegantly written. A compelling, exhaustively researched account that sweeps across much of the last century.
--Jonathan Rosenberg, The Christian Science Monitor

[A] vital account of 100 years of foundational civil rights activism.
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

An overdue tribute to the organization most responsible for dismantling American apartheid.
--Kirkus Reviews

A compelling story . . . includes enough action-packed material for a handful of historical novels, monographs, and biographies, as well as a few movies and a TV series or two.
--American Reviews
