A Hodder Education Publication

Civil Rights in the USA, 1860-1981 draws on respected and best-selling content from Race Relations in the USA, 1860-1981 and adapts this content in order to cover the requirements of the shorter units. Tracing the development of African American civil rights in the U.S., this title ranges from segregation in the 1950s to the growth of radicalism in the sixties. Throughout the book, key dates, terms, and issues are highlighted, and historical interpretations of key debates are outlined. Summary diagrams are included to consolidate knowledge and understanding of the period, and exam-style questions and tips written by examiners for each examination board provide the opportunity to develop exam skills.
