About the Author:

Walter Vandereycken is Professor of Psychiatry, Psychology Institute, Catholic University of Louvain and Clinical Director, Centre for Behaviour Therapy, Alexanian Psychiatric Hospital, Tienen, Belgium. He is the co-author of From Fasting Saints to Anorexic Girls: The History of Self-Starvation.

Review:

"Jeffries' book sets a new standard for the political history of African Americans in the rural South by refocusing on the mechanics of power taken, used, lost, and retaken between blacks and whites, rather than the larger fabric of social and cultural politics. Given the stark and still unrelieved inequalities of the black belt, this is a salutary stance." -Van Gosse, "Journal of Southern History"

"Without succumbing to the temptation to paint the struggle for black equality in broad strokes, Jeffries isolates the locus of the issues that framed the movement and uses these to explain how, through a variety of social networks, the movement spread regionally and ultimately nationally... is an exceptional piece of scholarship. Jeffries has produced an important work that will unquestionably reshape the debate over the origins and legacy of the civil rights and black power movements for years to come."-The Journal of American History,

"Jeffries examines the topic more thoroughly and in greater depth that any previous study, pressing the narrative back to Reconstruction but focusing most of his narrative and analysis on mid-1960s and 1970s. The research is wide-ranging and in great depth, in archival and oral history sources. . . . Make no mistake about it: this book is a needed and important addition to the historiography of the Civil Rights movement. . . . Essential."
-"Choice",

"Jeffries has written the book historians of the black freedom movement have been waiting for. His beautifully written account rescues Lowndes County from its role as merely a backdrop to 'Black Power, ' to being one of the key battlegrounds for democracy in the United States. Here are local people whose local struggles have contributed mightily to the kind of politics we desperately need in the Obama age--the politics of 'freedom democracy, ' a politics born in Reconstruction, rooted in social justice and human rights, and honed in the Alabama cotton belt."
-Robin D. G. Kelley, author of "Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination"

"Jeffries's Bloody Lowndes is an important contribution to the literature of the African American freedom struggle. Jeffries reveals the deep historical roots of black struggles against racial and economic oppression in the Black Belt. He makes clear that the civil rights reforms of the 1960s were insufficient responses to the 'freedom politics' that spawned the Lowndes County Freedom Organization--the first Black Panther Party."
-Clayborne Carson, author of "In Struggle: SNCC and the Black Awakening of the 1960s"
