Summary
In spite of extensive research and writing on Martin Luther King Jr., insufficient attention has been given to the convergence of ideas and action in his life. King stands out as a rare mix of the deeply profound thinker and intellect who put the fruit of that reflection into the service of direct social action. Burrow offers a comprehensive and detailed account of the formal and informal influences on King's ethical thought and social action
