Pressestimmen"This well-documented book is a good example of what can be done with a topic in local history. It traces the history of the Chicago branch of the Urban League from its creation in 1916-17 until 1965.... All who seek to understand why we have had racial demonstrations and riots in our cities will find enlightenment here." - The Historian "The author utilizes his sources effectively, especially the files of the local office and personal interviews, in piecing together a fascinating story of the trials and tribulations of the Chicago League.... This book makes worthwhile reading." - Journal of Negro History "[History of the Chicago Urban League] gives evidence of careful research and balanced judgment. The author presents a detailed picture of the working of the League - its programs, finances, and internal feuds - against the larger background of the social and economic conditions of Chicago's Negro population." - Journal of American History"
