About this title


In this exemplary work of scholarly synthesis the author traces the course of events from the emergence of Martin Luther King, Jr. as a national black spokesman during the Montgomery bus boycott to his radical critique of American society and foreign policy during the last years of his life. He also provides the first in-depth analysis of King's famous Letter from Birmingham Jail - a manifesto of the American civil rights movement and an eloquent defence of non-violent protest.

From the Back Cover:

"An incisive assessment of the techniques, writings, and leadership of Martin Luther King....Perhaps Colaiaco's greatest contribution is his in-depth analysis of King's 'Letter From Birmingham Jail,' a manifesto of the black civil-rights movement that the author calls one of the greatest historical documents of the era....Though brief, this book does justice to a great mind."-KIRKUS

"An intelligent and highly readable brief introduction to the doctrines and crusades of one of 'the greatest political strategists of all times.''' -THE JOURNAL OF SOUTHERN HISTORY

"Colaiaco's book fills a very important place in the historiography of Martin Luther King, Jr. It is a short, thorough work that touches all the main issues and themes, and puts them into the context of the times....Its quality and accessibility should send readers from its pages to the more detailed works." -CHOICE
