Review:

"Very suitable for intro and advanced courses."--Andrew Harrison, Temple University
"A well-written and valuable survey of the emerging forces that elevated the status of civil rights during the 30s."--Journal of American History
"Sitkoff's study is so sweeping in its scope, so thorough in its research, and so balanced in its presentation that even die-hard revisionists and unconverted relics of the 1960s may find themselves acknowledging the weight of his evidence, the strength of his argument. And if not, there is enough
evidence here to support opposing conclusions. That is good history in anybody's book."--John S. Rosenberg, The Nation
"An excellent study of black civil rights in the New Deal period."--David M. Bartlett, Carnegie-Mellon University
