Product Description

At Canaan's Edge concludes America in the King Years, a three-volume history that will endure as a masterpiece of storytelling on American race, violence, and democracy. Pulitzer Prize-winner and bestselling author Taylor Branch makes clear in this magisterial account of the civil rights movement that Martin Luther King, Jr., earned a place next to James Madison and Abraham Lincoln in the pantheon of American history.

"The crowning achievement of Branch's King trilogy is to show anew the moral power of [nonviolent] philosophy."

-- Garry Wills, The New York Review of Books
"A magnificent account of witness and sacrifice."

-- John Leonard, Harper's Magazine
