This history of the climatic years of the civil rights movement depicts the reluctance of American intellectuals to participate in its efforts or adopt its cause. Based on unpublished archival material and new interviews, the book presents a portrait of leading writers and scholars responding with ambivalence to the movement. Polsgrove (journalism, Indiana University at Bloomington) contrasts the moderate voices of Faulkner, Ellison, Woodward, and Warren with their more radical counterparts, represented by Wright, Du Bois, Reddick, Zinn, and Silver. c.
