"A compelling and powerful book that should be read by anyone interested in the continuing history of racial oppression and conflict in the United States. Lemann successfully interweaves personal narratives of African-American migrants and their families with the discouraging story of politics and public policy in Chicago and Washington."– David Brion Davis, Yale University
"A fascinating and deeply moving book, a masterpiece of social anthropology. Lemann’s account of the political history of the War on Poverty ranks with the very best contemporary history."–David Herbert Donald, Harvard University
