"First Edition" stated on copyright page, inscribed and signed by author on half-title page.

Binding is tight & square, no cracking. Pages and edges are clean. Clean olive green endpapers; no previous owner writing or bookplates.

Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. During the decade of the Sixties, Judith Trotsky, on of America's most distinguished film researchers, saw the history of the nation projected across her eyes. Seated for thousands of hours before her Movieola screen, she scanned the news footage and archival film documentaries which constitute the graphic chronicle of 1958-1973. This book is a unique recording of the most eloquent, melancholy, and dangerous rhetoric of America's racial battle. Many of the scenes it recalls would be lost to history without Ms. Trotsky's research. 017914
