    Martin Luther King Jr

    A new appraisal of the great civil rights leader

    Martin Luther King's public life lasted only thirteen years--yet in that time, he changed our attitudes toward civil rights forever, and he continues to inspire human rights movements today. He has become the epitome of courage, self-denial, compassion, and reconciliation. He exemplifies the belief that moral pressure and force of character can overcome great obstacles. Like every great public figure, however, he was also flawed and fallible.

    Richard S. Reddie provides a lively, highly informative, thought-provoking reappraisal of this famous man, showing how King was a radical whose ideas on peace, war, poverty, social justice, and equality emerged from his reading of the Bible and were well ahead of his time.
