Bearing the Cross: Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference

'“Comprehensive, incisive and objective, based on thorough and wide-ranging research, Bearing the Cross presents a great leader in all his frailty and his valor.” —Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.   “A dazzling piece of reporting and scholarship. No one interested in the American civil rights movement, or in that remarkable human being, Martin Luther King, Jr., will be able to skip Bearing the Cross.” —Anthony Lewis   “David Garrow’s new biography is by all odds the definitive work on the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. Bearing the Cross is an extraordinary, insightful monument to a great American; a masterpiece of scholarly reconstruction and interpretation. It will come to mind whenever King’s name is invoked.” —C. Eric Lincoln, professor of religion and culture at Duke University   “A monumental volume . . . Astoundingly comprehensive . . . Constructed on a rock-solid foundation of research . . . By far the most complete account of King’s life.” —San Francisco Chronicle   “Bearing the Cross established Garrow as one of our most thoughtful (and prolific) students of the civil rights movement in America. . . . The writing is admirably clear, and the research is nothing short of monumental.” —The Washington Post Book World'
