    Although this book seemed generally solid, factual errors on page 5 make me cautious about the rest of the text. The issues on page 5 are unsettling because they seem to have people on the wrong side of issues. "[Truman's] efforts to push stronger civil rights laws through Congress were defeated by Southern Democrats and conservative Republicans," would be correct if the sentence stopped with Southern Democrats, who used filibusters to block Truman's Civil Rights legislation.

The issues on page 5 are unsettling because they seem to have people on the wrong side of issues. "[Truman's] efforts to push stronger civil rights laws through Congress were defeated by Southern Democrats and conservative Republicans," would be correct if the sentence stopped with Southern Democrats, who used filibusters to block Truman's Civil Rights legislation. In fact, many people doubted Truman's commitment to Civil Rights, stating that he was splitting the Democratic Party on the issue (creating the segregationist Dixicrat movement) and merely trying to win votes from Republicans (who were more favorable to his Civil Rights initiatives). See link: http://millercenter.org/president/bio... Another example, the text reads,"Thurgood Marshall... who led the fight against school integration." And yet, I am absolutely positive he was FOR school integration and AGAINST segregation. After all, he went on to become the first African American judge on the Supreme Court. Getting his history correct is pretty important. These misstatements, early in the text, left an unsettling feeling for me for the rest of the book, which seemed sound. I guess if I had all the time in the world to investigate further I could know. Also, generally, I've been happy with the Sandleback Publishing American History series, I just wish I could have more confidence in this title. I would love to read a book that details how it was the party of Lincoln lost it's status as the Black man's defender. Unfortunately, though this book claims to be about the Civil Rights movement and Vietnam, the current status quo of Democrats as the party of African Americans is projected backward in time.
