MEDIA REVIEWS

Wheaton had made a painstaking investigation--at times a minute-by-minute recontruction--of the fatal assault. She has exhausted the sources, many of the most important of which were skillful interviews with participants and eyewitnesses, to supply a meticulous account of the antecedents, the shooting, and the two trials. . . . Wheaton has made a notable contribution to our understanding of what she calls 'the slow evolution of disaster in the making' and to a 'join[ing of] hands across national and ideological boundaries to stop it before it consumes us.'--"Journal of American History"


This insightful study is highly recommended. . . . Wheaton profiles the most interesting actors from each group and provides a lot of information on their backgrounds and character development.--"Library Journal"


A detailed account of the Greensboro killings . . . Wheaton does an impressive job of tracking the complicated legal details to the case.--"Washington Monthly"


An absorbing and complete account of this tragic episode and its tangled aftermath . . . A thoughtful and balanced work that examines the social climate that fostered the racism and violently anti-Communist fervor that fueled the Klansmen and Nazis as well as the left-wing idealism that shaped the philosophies of the anti-Klan demonstrators.--"St. Petersburg Times"


A definitive, evenhanded account.--"Kirkus Reviews"
