"By centering on Selma and the events surrounding the violent confrontation on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, Robert A. Pratt offers a fresh look at this historical crossroads which marked the culmination of the Civil Rights Movement. Brisk and clearly written, this timely and engaging narrative captures the unfolding drama, key moments, major personalities, internal tensions, and triumphs and tragedies of Bloody Sunday."

"Pratt tells a story packed with drama, personal courage, political valor, and frustration."

"Pratt has provided readers with a compelling narrative that is a welcome addition to civil rights studies for both classrooms and a general audience... Pratt has woven together a very readable chronology of dramatic events with attention to both the larger historical context and ongoing scholarly debates, a task many authors struggle to do effectively in much longer monographs."
