    Book Description:
    “The work of David J. Garrow is more than a day-by-day account of how the historic Voting Rights Act of 1965 came into being. It is also a skillful analysis of the dynamics of protest activity and more particularly of the ways in which successful protesters deliberately use the mass media to influence uninvolved audiences.” American Historical Review
    “A valuable book, because it is a reminder of both the heroism and the brutality displayed in the great civil rights crusade.” David Herbert Donald, The New Republic
    “One of the most comprehensive studies yet of a single campaign within the civil-rights movement.” Pat Watters, New York Times Book Review
    “An excellent fusion of important theoretical constructs with careful and thoughtful empirical analysis. A desirable addition to most college libraries, useful for a variety of courses .Thoroughly documented. Recommended.” Choice
