Review:

“The most comprehensive, the most thoroughly researched and documented, the most scholarly of the biographies of Martin Luther King, Jr.” (HENRY STEELE COMMAGER, Philadelphia Inquirer)

“Moving, scholarly, lucid, invaluable. ... The book on Martin Luther King.” (WILLIAM MANCHESTER, author of The Last Lion)

“Oates has written the most comprehensive account of King’s life yet published. ... Displays a remarkable understanding of King’s individual role in the civil rights movement. ... Helps us appreciate how sorely King is missed.” (ERIC FONER, New York Times Book Review)

“A monumental work. ... A stirring portrait.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Martin Luther King is captured in all his power, glory, and humility.” (Chicago Tribune)

“Clearly the best biography we have. ... Stirring. ... Evokes King and his epic struggle with you-are-there vividness.” (Newsday)

A Notable Book of the Year (New York Times Book Review)
