I am an Australian, who is in the USA for 3 years due to work committments. I wanted to know about the history of race relations in the USA. What I learnt fromt the book amazed me. A must read for all the countries which have racial problems. Sitkoff has presented a lot of hard data in an very readeable book, which is a great achievement.

Used in a history of the civil rights movement course, this book provides a solid introduction for students to the names, places and dates of many of the movements key moments. The book is easy to read organized into chapters chronologically surrounding key events including the bus boycott, student sit ins, and freedom riders.

Sitkoff writing includes enough context to allow the reader understand the movement from it earliest beginnings.

I read the first 18 pages and was really impressed. It contains a lot more information than the average civil rights textbook!

This book is very well written, however it can be a very difficult book to continue reading because it's so vivid and detail oriented. Though I would highly recommend if you are interested in this era of American History.

I bought this book for a class, but I actually like and it is very easy to read. There is not much I can say about it because there is just too much to say
