Reviews

"Branch is as eloquent and trenchant as ever...the book recalls and revitalizes a history that deserves its details" "On the America in the King Years trilogy: " "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." "On the America in the King Years trilogy: ""In remarkable, meticulous detail, Branch provides us with the most complex and unsentimental version of King and his times yet produced." "On the America in the King Years trilogy: ""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." "Instead of getting a dry dates-and-events history book, readers are gifted with glimpses of life and 'historically significant' events, presented almost in the form of a novel."
