Booklist Review: "From the Montgomery bus boycott of the mid-1950s, during which his leadership in the black civil-rights movement began to coalesce, to the balcony of the Memphis motel where he met his death, this volume offers a magisterial reckoning of the events in and significance of the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. Garrow's book is based substantially on vast interviews with people King knew, as well as on King's personal papers and other archival material. While not fast moving, the study has great depth and spirit. King emerges, of course, as a man of stature but also as a man who was, in the last word, human. Notes, bibliography, and index. BH. 323.4'092 (B) King, Martin Luther / Southern Christian Leadership Conference History / Afro-Americans Civil rights / Afro-Americans Biography / U.S. Race relations [CIP] 86-8594"
