Editorial Reviews

"In this sensitive biography, Manning conveys the outrage and absurdity of racism with a measured restraint that is much more powerful than if he had indulged in the diatribes to which his material could easily lend itself....People, settings, atmosphere...are beautifully evoked in a book thatmakes a major contribution to understanding the forces that obstructed and warped Just's career."--American Scientist
