Sweet Land of Liberty? : The African-American Struggle for Civil Rights in the Twentieth Century Paperback

Part of the Studies In Modern History series

Description

A powerful and moving account of the campaign for civil rights in modern America.

Robert Cook is concerned less with charismatic leaders like Martin Luther King, and more with the ordinary men and women who were mobilised by the grass-roots activities of civil-rights workers and community leaders.

He begins with the development of segregation in the late nineteenth century, but his main focus is on the continuing struggle this century.

It is a dramatic story of many achievements - even if in many respects it is also a record of unfinished business.
