Reviews
"The crowning achievement of Branch's King trilogy is to show anew the moral power of [nonviolent] philosophy."

-- The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"This is so far the best look at [the Sixties]. It is an essential tool for understanding what happened to and in America across that dizzying span of years."

-- Garry Wills, The New York Review of Books
"A magnificent account of witness and sacrifice."

-- John Leonard, Harper's Magazine
"A thrilling book, marvelous in both its breadth and its detail. There is drama in every paragraph."

-- Anthony Lewis, The New York Times Book Review
"Luminous...magisterial...At Canaan's Edge is a sweeping history of protest and politics, bursting with outsize figures."

-- Chicago Tribune
