This is one of the few books which I have found which gives you not only excellent information and varied views on the struggle African Americans faced in gaining their Civil Rights, but also contains various sections on the other minority groups such as Native Americans, Asians, and Hispanics with a view on how they fought for equality. Not only does the book give you all you need to know when it comes to studying American Civil Rights, but it also has very handy exam style questions with model answers to see if you're on the right track! A MUST if you're studying the subject for A'Level - it'll ease the stress at exam time for sure!

Simply put; if you're doing the AS level History course buy this book as it covers a wide, relevant range of topics in sufficient depth.

I recently wrote a 3500 word course essay on the Civil Rights Movement, and this was by far and away my most useful resource, and a very good go-to book for facts.

A little thin on details sometimes, so if you're using it for more serious writings supplement it with books like Taylor Branch's mammoth Parting The Waters. Still, there is a really great, concise narrative here.

This book offers a good read on US civil rights. It notonly covers African American civil rights it also covers the civil rights of other groups such as Hispanics and the rights of labour. Aimed at the A level market the text unfortunately doesn't address recent scholarship on AfricanAmerican civil rights , in particular on the pre-1945 period. Also coverage of labour rights is scant and seems to have been an afterthought when producing the book.
Although strong on narrative the text lack a strong historical interpretation dimension.
