Review Text

This is a second, revised edition of the "definitive study of racial segregation in the United States" with new material since its original publication in 1957 on civil rights legislation, the sit-in movement, the racial violence in Birmingham, Selma and elsewhere, and aspects of Negro life in the North. The book has been an important if not indispensable work for both college and public libraries. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
