'Dr. King deals CRITICALLY with VARIOUS FACTIONS in the FIGHT FOR FREEDOM, evaluating FAIRLY but BLUNTLY the effects of the CHURCH, of various CIVIL RIGHTS GROUPS, of the BLACK MUSLIMS-- and the ROLES of some WELL-KNOWN PERSONAGES... The book offers a UNIQUELY CONVINCING over-all view of the WISDOM and EFFECTIVENESS of the Negro's new (1964) weapon--NONVIOLENT PROTEST... it narrates the WHOLE STRATEGY of the GREAT BIRMINGHAM CAMPAIGN, a HEROIC and SUSPENSEFUL ACCOUNT... The book also includes THE LETTER-- here published IN FULL for the FIRST TIME-- that MARTIN LUTHER KINGH, JR.' wrote from BIRMINGHAM JAIL to answer the EMINENT CHURCHMEN who had CRITICIZED the 'timing' of this 'OUTSIDER'... This is a DEVASTATING and IMPORTANT BOOK.' 178 pages. Overall, an EXCELLENT 1ST EDITION COPY of the 3RD BOOK written by MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
