In this singe volume, Robert Weisbrot gives a vivid, admirably balanced history of the civil rights movement -from its rise with the Brown decision and the Montgomery bus boycott in the 1950s, through the dramatic sit-ins, freedom rides, marches, and great legislative gains in the 1960s, to its decline in the urban riots, disputes over leadership, and affirmative action in the late 1960s and 1970s. Black-and-white photos.
