[Thaddeus Stevens and the Fight for Negro Rights is a] timely, authoritative account of the career of a fanatical anti-slavery Congressman…. Stevens' intolerance and acid wit are presented sympathetically yet objectively. The documentary style is enlivened by quotations from leading political figures of the day…. A welcome book on a much neglected early "civil rights" crusader.
