A brilliant little tool for all your civil rights research needs. This book has currently been the basis of the majority of my personal study notes on peaceful protest and militancy in the search for equality.

If you need a consise book which gives a clear and no nonsense perspective and explaination of black civil rights in America, then this is the book for you!
Amazingly helpful with my dissertation on war and blacks in america from 1860-1980. Concisely summarises the debates on the causes/themes/outcomes of the civil rights movement and role of key players. A must-read for anyone wanting to know more about different perspectives on the movement
