Not only an important contribution to the history of the struggle for civil rights; it also enlarges our general understanding of contemporary politics and culture.—Abigail Thernstrom, The New Republic

To anyone who would understand SNCC, this is an essential book.—James Polk, Newsday

In Clayborne Carson SNCC has at last found a scholar capable of probing its radical and fractious nature in a manner both sympathetic and prudently critical… Students of social protest will be deeply in the author’s debt for years to come.—Francis M. Wilnoit, American Historical Review

This splendid history of SNCC has successfully captured the dynamic interplay of two parallel but contradictory elements… This is a well-researched, balanced, and analytical assessment of the history of a primarily black student activist group that, with all its failings, made its special contribution to the political awakening of American blacks and to the changing of American institutions and practices.—Abraham Holtzman, American Political Science Review
