The attention the race question has received in the press, on radio and television would seem to preclude, the need for anyone reviewing what the issues involved are if it were not for the variations in point of view which are possible on this vitally important matter. Editor Bradford carefully selects twenty two views reflecting the angles from which this critical social issue of our time has been seen. The book ranges over a variety of fundamental documents on the subject -- from the eloquent letter from a Birmingham jail of Martin Luther King through the voice of responsible Southern citizenry to the opinions of Governors Faubus and Barnett. The twenty two contributors also include such eloquent and articulate spokesmen as Harry Golden, Roy Wilkins, James Baldwin, Norman Podhoretz and John LaFarge. The result is a public forum in book form for all to hear in personal privacy. The uncommitted as well as the committed will bolster their leanings and help document their positions through study of this symposium on the greatest human evil of this day.
