"Division Street: America" is the book that first made Studs Terkel's reputation as the country's foremost oral historian, as "more than a writer. . . a national resource," in the words of John Kenneth Galbraith. Indeed, the people in Division Street were so compelling that Terkel revisited many of them for his recent bestseller, Race, showing how their opinions had changed and their prejudices had grown in the intervening decades.

Here in their own words are the testimonies of the winners and losers, the strugglers and the defeated, the hopeful and the despairing. . . Each of them, like each of us, is a cross-section of all that is contained in humanity. -- Chicago Tribune
Remarkable. . . Division Street astonishes, dismays, exhilarates. -- The New York Times
