DK Publishing has created a splendid book. The text by historian David Rubel is wonderfully written and very moving. The book is perhaps the best single full account of the momentous civil rights revolution from 1954 to 1968. And the combination of text and pictures in The Coming Free is breathtaking: one beautifully designed spread after another, each with amazing (and often rare) photographs. You can¿t help turning the pages. Rubel has also filled the book with dozens of short essays, many of them biographies of key figures. In short, The Coming Free seems a breakthrough book for DK: it signals a far higher quality of text, pictures, and their integration than DK has done before. Kudos to Rubel and DK.
