Review

“Right out of the pages of our lives….Compelling portraits placed in the excitement of a period when oppressed and powerless people moving together changed themselves and their country profoundly and permanently.” The New York Times

“In remarkable, meticulous detail, Branch provides us with the most complex and unsentimental version of King and his times yet produced.” The Wall Street Journal

“There will be the inevitable comparisons to Carl Sandburg’s Abraham Lincoln and Shelby Foote’s The Civil War, two other masterworks that use the grand sweep of history to lay barethe nation’s soul.” ― Chicago Tribune --This text refers to the kindle_edition edition.
