Product Details

Praise

“A huge and marvelous work.” —Kai Erikson, front page, The New York Times Book Review

“A book of such force and clarity that its just praise would require language long rendered empty by jacket blurbs. To say that Common Ground is about busing in Boston is a bit like saying that Moby-Dick is about whaling in New Bedford.” —Robert B. Parker, Chicago Tribune

“An American classic, a book that will find a place not merely in the shelves where our national history is recorded but also in those where our literature is kept.” —Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post

“A big book—monumental in scope, rich in historical detail, challenging in its conclusions and compassionate in its portraiture of the three families: the black Twymons, the Irish McGoffs, and the Yankee Divers.” —Fox Butterfield, The New Republic
