Fog of War

The Second World War and the Civil Rights Movement

Edited by Kevin M. Kruse and Stephen Tuck

  • Collection bringing together original essays by top junior and senior scholars in civil rights and African American history.
  • Challenges assumptions in war and society literature that World War II was a rights-making war that empowered social protest.
  • Challenges the now-popular "Long Civil Rights Movement" thesis by arguing that activists faced more setbacks and resistance to desegregation than successes in wartime.
