Waging a Good War: A Military History of the Civil Rights Movement, 1954-1968
With Waging a Good War, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and best-selling author Thomas E. Ricks offers a fresh perspective on the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 60s, highlighting the Movement’s unexpected commonalities with the kind of strategic and tactical thinking that makes for a successful military. Ricks provides a riveting look at what Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lewis, and many other pivotal but less familiar figures did, and how and when it led them to success.
