By Martin Luther King, Jr. Clayborne Carson, Ph.D (Editor).
This is an essential collection piece for Martin Luther King, Jr., historians and those just becoming educated to the teachings of one of this century's greatest leaders. Commissioned by MLK's widow, Coretta Scott King, Clayborne Carson has compiled a powerful array of King's speeches, written accounts of his life (in the form of journal entries and letters to his family). The result is a mainly "religious and political" chronicle of King's life. The years of preparation that went into this work are evident. More than a resource, The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr., is a keepsake. R.A.P. Grand Central Publishing (2001), English, Paperback: 416 pages.
