Daybreak of freedom : the Montgomery bus boycott by Stewart Burns( )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 1,998 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Montgomery bus boycott was a formative moment in twentieth-century history: a harbinger of the African American freedom movement, a springboard for the leadership of Martin Luther King Jr., and a crucial step in the struggle to realize the American dream of liberty and equality for all. In Daybreak of Freedom, Stewart Burns presents a groundbreaking documentary history of the boycott. Using an extraordinary array of more than one hundred original documents, he crafts a compelling and comprehensive account of this celebrated year-long protest of racial segregation."--Jacket

16 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than a biography, To the Mountaintop is the history of a turbulent epoch that changed the course of American and world history. Moral warrior and nonviolent apostle; man of God rocked by fury, fear, and guilt; rational thinker driven by emotional and spiritual truth - Martin Luther King Jr. struggled to reconcile these divisions in his soul. Here is an intimate narrative of his intellectual and spiritual journey from cautious liberal, to reluctant radical, to righteous revolutionary. Stewart Burns draws not only on King's speeches, letters, writings, and well-reported strategizing and activities, but also on previously underutilized oral histories of key meetings and events, which present a dramatic account of King and the movement in the crucial years from 1955 to 1968"--Jacket
A people's charter : the pursuit of rights in America by James MacGregor Burns( Book )

9 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 1,064 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published on the 200th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, this is a sweeping chronicle of the struggle for political and economic justice. Pulitzer Prize-winning historian James MacGregor Burns and Stewart Burns trace America's tenuous hold on freedom from the time of the 13 colonies' exclusionist voting practices to Ronald Reagan's campaign against the First Amendment reinforced by private "new right" groups and fundamentalists. They also analyze antislavery and workers' struggles, the detention of Japanese-Americans during World War II, McCarthy-era abuses, civil rights, women's activism, and encroachments by the FBI on personal freedoms. The authors envisage a "Great Majority" dependent on women's leadership coming to power and establishing a massive rights program, and conclude that rights measures in the United States have been "too little, too late, too short-lived."
