Book review on The Sword and the Shield: The Revolutionary Lives of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.

1500-word review of the thematic book of your choice. A successful book review is
neither a simple thumbs up/thumbs down nor a plot summary. Instead it is a careful
critical evaluation of an authors accomplishments and their significance. The books
selected explore historical foundations of urgent contemporary issues. Chose one and
read it actively and intensively. Identify the questions that shape and motivate the book,
the answers the author proposes, and, most importantly, the consequences of those
questions and answers for our understanding of the modern United States.
