Biografie (woord)

Peter B. Levy is a Professor of History at York College of Pennsylvania, where he teaches US history classes. His books include Civil War on Race Street: The Civil Rights Movement in Cambridge, Maryland (2003).


'Levy examines the period between 1963 and 1972, when over 750 'revolts' (also 'riots' or 'civil disorders') took place in the US related to the fight for African Americans' civil rights. Levy argues convincingly that these revolts and their concomitant impact on American society should be viewed as part of a 'Great Uprising' that is an epochal event in American history, comparable in importance to WW I or the Great Depression. … Levy highlights the impact that the 'Uprising' had on ordinary Americans living in the smaller communities where so many of the revolts occurred. The Great Uprising resuscitates important aspects of unrecovered American history. Summing Up: Highly recommended.' E. F. Wallace, Choice
