First of all, I was impressed with the speed at which this was produced! This is an updated version of a book that goes back to 2001, but I'm sure that chapters about both candidates were prepared, and rushed into production as soon as it was prudent to do so!

The layout was fantastic. The flow made sense, the colors were pleasing, and I loved how

Her newest title, The March Against Fear (National Geographic: 2017), is her third work to examine the civil rights movement in the American South. In the case of these and other books, Bausum s
