Few figures in American history have inspired such an extraordinary amount of historical and biographical literature as Martin Luther King, Jr. Since his death in 1968, innumerable books have been written about King specifically or about his role in the civil rights movement. Four years ago David Garrow edited a series of eighteen volumes on King and the civil rights movement. 1 This past year witnessed the much anticipated publication of the first volume of a projected fourteen volumes of The Papers of Martin Luther King, Jr.
