Debating the civil rights movement, 1945-1968

"Decades after the most significant movement for social change in twentieth-century America, historians continue to debate the origins, impact, and legacy of the Black struggle for equality. This book brings together two of the nation's leading scholars of the civil rights era to re-examine the individuals and events that forever changed race relations in this country. The authors capture all of the drama that characterized this turbulent period in our nation's past, and, while they may disagree on the primary agents of reform, they both conclude that the struggle is incomplete. This book is certain to make readers rethink not only their understanding of the civil rights movement but also their comprehension of the current state of black-white relations."--Jacket
