Steven F. Lawson is Professor of History at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.Review:
With the publication of historian Steven Lawson's excellent study of the campaigns for voting rights in the South, we have welcome evidence that scholarship concerned with black activism and governmental policies in post-World War II America is alive and thriving. (Reviews in American History)
Thoroughly researched and skillfully argued, this volume is an important contribution to the study of the civil rights revolution. (The Historian)
As Lawson observes, only the foundations of change have been laid; the main struggle for reform lies ahead. This book demonstrates how it is possible to write excellent history which is also good political science. (Political Studies Review)
Through his impressive research in a host of important but relatively unexploited sources Lawson has filled in details, examined the role of civil rights organizations and pressure groups, and clarified the process through which civil rights legislation made its way through Congress. . . . Readers are likely to find this book a valuable summary of a subject that has not been dealt with so thoroughly before. (Journal of Southern History)
