And the Crooked Places Made Straight: The Struggle for Social Change in the 1960sby David Mark Chalmers
Synopses & Reviews
With its hint of passion and irony, the title of David Chalmers' book aptly captures the complexities of his study. Beautifully written, it is more than a recitation of the actors and events of the 1960s. It helps us to make sense of the decade.--Dan T. Carter, Emory University.
Marvelously comprehensive and superbly written. An exceptionally valuable overview of the 1960s, replete with astute interpretations and commentary.--David J. Garrow, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Bearing the Cross: Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.
Book News Annotation:
