MEDIA REVIEWS

"This stimulating book consists of nine essays preceded by an instructive introduction and followed by a useful bibliography [and] the authors not only show the effectiveness of King's rhetoric, but they also place each of his works in historical context."
"Journal of American History"
"


"The essays range from windy city to thunder road, from temple to garbage truck, from judicious inferences drawn from a remarkable array of primary sources to worshipful scrutiny of oratorical text. Several authors stress the relative merit and impact of Dr. King's oral works. Students of King's thought, idiom, deficiencies, and triumphs should examine the insightful and provocative findings in this carefully edited book."
