Summary note
  • This new, two-volume set explores the ways in which civil rights have been given, cemented, overturned, or left unrecognized, from the first uprisings to present-day 2020. In 2014, as the nation celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the March on Washington, civil rights groups such as Black Lives Matter were organizing. Though our societal rhetoric has shifted, the struggle remains the same. In 362 alphabetically arranged essays, ranging in length from 200 to 2,700 words, Civil Rights Movements: Past & Present examines a wide range of civil rights issues in all their manifestations. This edition not only provides 64 new articles but also includes hundreds of updates to older articles that include new biographical resources. Not just focusing on the history of African American civil rights in the United States, this new edition has been expanded to include other civil rights movements -- the women's movement, the LGBT movement, the Chicano Movement, the American Indian Movement, and the disability rights movement -- while still maintaining a comprehensive overview of African American civil rights. The entries are arranged alphabetically and run from "Abolition" to "Zoning."--Provided by publisher
  • The essays in Civil Rights Movements: Past & Present cover a wide variety of material. While some essays focus on individual organizations, movements, or people, other cover court cases or pieces of official legislation. Still, others cover broader, more conceptual topics. Back matter in Volume 2 contains a number of reference tools to help readers further explore civil rights history. An updated Bibliography, organized by category, directs readers to accessible sources for further study. An updated glossary of Notable Civil Rights Figures offers overviews of the life and achievements of 64 key historical actors involved in all aspects of American civil rights. A Timeline provides a snapshot of significant civil rights events covering four centuries, from 1619 to 2019. Lastly, a Subject Index provides access to the individual essays and their content through multiple access points. This two-volume work contains more than 350 in-depth essays that analyze the events that have shaped American attitudes from the start of the civil rights movement into the new millennium, communicating important concepts in a clear, approachable style, with more than 100 photographs. This is an essential text for any scholar interested in the evolution of activism. -- Provided by publisher.
