JESSE JACKSON

Kosof's first-hand experience with the civil-rights movement and her understanding of her subject make this biography valuable for finding out more about this controversial figure. Kosof examines the various aspects of Jackson's life and public career, giving a clear picture of his work in the civil fights movement, his successful ""civil economic rights"" activities with Operation Breadbasket and Operation PUSH, and his forays into local and national politics. The author, while clearly a fan of Jackson's, does elucidate the cons along with the pros. Her prose style is straightforward and simple without being condescending Index; bibliography.
