520 1  "After many years of neglect and faultfinding by 
       contemporary activists, historians, and the media, Manfred
       Berg restores the NAACP to its rightful place at the heart
       of the civil rights movement. Berg reveals the group's 
       eminently political character as he assesses both its 
       historical achievements and its failures. He suggests that
       while the NAACP did make significant gains in furthering 
       the progress of America's black citizens at the grassroots
       level, its national agenda should not be discounted. Berg 
       challenges criticisms of recent years that the NAACP's 
       goals and methods were half-hearted, ineffective, and 
       irrelevant and reveals a resourceful, dynamic, and 
       politically astute organization that has done much to open
       up the electoral process to greater black participation."-
