Editorial Reviews

Review

“A valuable book, because it is a reminder of both the heroism and the brutality displayed in the great civil rights crusade.” —The New Republic
 
“One of the most comprehensive studies yet of a single campaign within the civil-rights movement.” —The New York Times Book Review
 
Protest at Selma adds to the growing literature on the history of the black civil-rights movement of the 1960s by tracing, in a careful and skillful manner, events and forces leading to the passage of perhaps the most important civil-rights legislation of the decade. In addition, Garrow presents a more complete view of Martin Luther King as a shrewd political strategist.” —Social Science Quarterly
