Praise

"Litwack displays a keen sense of the revealing expression and incident; a controlled passion against injustice and cruelty; and a grasp–not always in evidence these days–of the elements of genuine tragedy in the black-white confrontation that has shaped southern history."–Eugene Genovese, The New York Times Book Review

"As a comprehensive study of the coming of freedom, Litwack’s book has no rival."–C. Vann Woodward, The New York Review of Books
