Synopsis: Explore the historical and cultural events leading up to and following the 1955 Montgomery Buss Boycott, and the controversies surrounding the event--for example, who was the inspiration for the boycott, and why. Furthermore, evaluate the lasting impact on Montgomery; how effective was the boycott as an example of nonviolent protest? Personal narratives from people who participated in the boycott, including Rosa Parks and Montgomery Baptist Minister Ralph David Abernathy bring a first person point-of-view to the narrative and lends an authentication to the weight of the text; the way in which an event is remembered depends on the people who record it. The broadest possible understanding of history comes from exploring multiple perspectives: from different time periods, different cultures, different ideologies. The 'Perspectives on Modern World History' series provides multiple views of momentous events in recent history. Using primary and secondary sources, each volume provides background information on a significant event in modern world history, presents the controversies surrounding the event, and offers first-person narratives from people who lived through or were impacted by the event. All volumes in the series include an annotated table of contents, a chronology, a bibliography, and a subject index. .
