|A Man's Life
An Autobiography Roger Wilkins
"An important, ground-breaking work."
The New York Times
Since Booker T. Washington's Up From Slavery, autobiography has been a major literary endeavor of African Americans seeking their part of the American dream. In A Man's Life, that search reaches into the Oval Office as a young Assistant Attorney General works to make civil rights a key part of "The Great Society." Through the pages pass many of the leading actors of the turbulent 60s. More than a biography, this book is part of the social history of one of the most dynamic periods of American history.
384 pages, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Reprint of first edition published in 1982.

|The Humane Imagination
Charles L. Black, Jr.
"A richly rewarding collection of essays by the poet laureate of the American Constitution."
Professor Black's accomplishments as scholar and activist place him in the first rank of American law. He worked on the landmark desegregation case of Brown vs. Board of Education and played a central role in many of the most important subsequent civil rights cases brought before the Supreme Court. This collection of essays vividly demonstrates the graceful manner in which Black unites a mastery of the technical demands of legal thinking with a keen sense of human history.
