Book Description Macmillan Publishing Company - Collier Books, New York, 1992. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: Near Fine. Third Printing. 545 pages. Hard to find any flaws in this thick oversized book except to say it has been read a couple of times and lacks that new feel while it does not have any marks or stamps. Just clean white tight pages. The political biography of an American dilemma. A robust, realistic portrait of Harlem's first African-American Congressman. This first full-scale and definitive biography of Powell traces the extraordinary rise and precipitous fall of the complex congressman. Hamilton has reassessed Powell's unique place in American history and whose flamboyant historic achievements were largely overshadowed by his controversial downfall. Size: 6" x 9".

Book Description Collier Books, New York, New York, U.S.A., 1992. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good +. Very-good+, clean condition. NO remainder marks or clippings. Tight spine,clean pages. 545 pages. Illustrated. NO writing or tears inside book. Library Journal: Powell (1908-72) fused a complex mix of temperament and tactics into a discomforting, loud leadership of racial protest that insistently exposed the gap between American principle and performance, argues Hamilton. Probing Powell's rise and fall, Hamilton moves from the 1930s, when Powell became a New York City councilman, to his service starting in 1945 as a U.S. Representative, and then to his chairing of the House Education and Labor Committee, his expulsion from the House in 1967, and his defeat at the polls in 1970. Hamilton's able analysis of the unapologetic, openly arrogant champion of civil rights reflects the race issues of the day within a prism of political theory focused on the conflict of basic American values like majority rule and minority rights. This book is essential for any serious collection on black biography, civil rights, or political analysis. Highly recommended. Bookseller Inventory # 042931
