One Dream or Two? is a critical historical, constitutional, and philosophical examination of Martin Luther King Jr's understanding of justice-his "Dream"-from within the context of the American political tradition. Nathan Schlueter introduces King's "I Have a Dream Speech" and then isolates elements of his larger vision for social justice-paying special attention to issues of racial discrimination, political economy, civil disobedience, and the relationship between politics and religion-situating those elements within historical, rhetorical, and political context.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Schlueter interprets the I Have a Dream speech through an insightful and extensive consideration of Martin Luther King Jr's social, religious, political, and economic thought. By juxtaposing King's appreciation of the American ideals of equality and freedom with King's criticism of how these principles were unequally practiced, Schlueter offers a more capacious assessment of King's dream than is typically rendered by either liberal or conservative commentators. Next to the speeches and writings of Martin Luther King Jr, One Dream or Two? offers the best introduction to King's political agenda and its place in the development of American liberalism... -- Lucas Morel, Washington and Lee University
One Dream or Two? is an important addition to the growing body of work on one of the most significant figures of the twentieth century. * Bridges *
The legacy of Martin Luther King Jr is debated, should be debated, and likely will be debated for generations to come. This book is an uncommonly fair-minded and informed contribution to that debate. -- Richard John Neuhaus, The Institute on Religion and Public Life; Editor, FIRST THINGS
