Moving from the fiery political baptism of Martin Luther King, Jr., to the corridors of Camelot where the Kennedy brothers weighed demands for justice against the deceptions of J. Edgar Hoover, here is a vivid tapestry of America, torn and finally transformed by a revolutionary struggle unequaled since the Civil War. Provides and unsurpassed portrait of King's rise to greatness and illuminates the stunning courage and personal conflict, the deals, maneuvers, betrayals, and rivalries that detemined history behind closed doors, at boycotts and sit-ins, on bloody freedom rides, and through siege and murder. Includes an Index.
