Protest at Selma: Martin Luther King, Jr, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965

by David J. Garrow - £13.95  Yale University Press (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780300024982 | ISBN 10: 0300024983

"The work of David J. Garrow is more than a day-by-day account of how the historic Voting Rights Act of 1965 came into being. It is also a skillful analysis of the dynamics of protest activity and more particularly of the ways in which successful protesters deliberately use the mass media to influence uninvolved audiences."
(American Historical Review )
"A valuable book, because it is a reminder of both the heroism and the brutality displayed in the great civil rights crusade."
(David Herbert Donald, The New Republic)
