At Canaan's Edge by Taylor Branch

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Taylor Branch has released the final installment of his trilogy on the civil rights movement, before I've even had a chance to read the first two volumes, which -- thanks to Edward R. Hamilton -- have been on my shelf for more than a year. In truth, I've wanted to read them since high school when I spied the first volume, Parting the Waters, in my history teacher's bookcase. Volume Two is Pillar of Fire, and the just-released third is At Canaan's Edge. Michiko Kakutani reviews it in the New York Times here.
