Product Description

Imported from USA


Robert Boynton The New York Times Dyson gives us a thoroughly contemporary King, an enigmatic hero whose
flaws and failings make him more, not less, relevant to our times.

Jake Lamar The New York Observer Not simply an important book -- it is a necessary one. In prose that is always sharp
and engaging, Dyson uses King's life and legacy to take on everything from contemporary conservatism to hip-hop
culture...An indispensable contribution to American social criticism.

Paul Rosenberg The Denver Post Masterfully, Dyson...seamlessly combines a passionate exploration of King's battles,
values and ideas with a highly nuanced picture of the contexts he struggled in and transformed, then draws parallels and
contrasts to our world today. Like King himself, the result speaks to everyone, from ivory tower to hip-hop streets,
challenging all of us to move beyond our present limitations.

Michael Fletcher The Washington Post Such is the genius of Dyson. He...flows freely from the profound to the profane,
from popular culture to classical literature...Dyson's latest book should only enhance his reputation...The book
resurrects a King who bears little resemblance to the sainted -- some say homogenized -- integrationist fixed in the
national consciousness.
