5.0 out of 5 stars Civil Rights 13 Nov 2009
This book is excellently written. It's full of interesting material and links to the pop culture of the period that other books of this type lack. The activities are really engaging too. The final section is all about the 1960s culture and counter culture and in this sense it fills a massive gap in the market as other A Level text books just don't cover this. The same is true of the last chapters on the rights of Native Americans and Hispanic Americans. Students of all abilities get a lot out of it.

Firstly, if you doing Civil Rights on the Edexcel exam board at AS level then you should consider buying this book. It's very useful because it's not loaded with detail unlike some other topic guides, as the format is nice and easy to break down and put into note form.

However, I would also strongly recommend buying the book "Civil Rights in the USA 1945-68 (Access to History) (Paperback)" as it contains and covers more things with more depth, it also is easy to break down with diagrams useful for revision on every other page. The "Study Guides" at the end of each chapter in the book are example questions that might come up in the exam (there example questions for OCR, AQA and Edexcel exam boards. Ive literally just come out of my history exam and this book was INCREDIBLY helpful in combination with the book I'm supposed to be reviewing! It can also be used as a cross-reference with it too.

So my recommendation is that you buy this book in combination with Civil Rights in the USA 1945-68 (Access to History)
and your knowledge will be as sound as a pound!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for use in the classroom 28 Sep 2009
I have used this book to help teach civil rights to my year 12 class. Its more interesting than its predecessor as its full of relevant evidence material and engaging pictures. The activities are helpful for students and the exam zone material will be useful for full preparation. The only downside is the lack of colour.
