    By xHabibtix
    If you are looking for a summary that offers a non-biased approach, this is perfect. My favorite them was the influence of The Dreamers on the black experience. There is more but I am sure you get the point. This is an exceptional companion that is highly informative as a stand along or a companion while you are reading the book.
