06 April 2018

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR’s own punchily written account from January 1964 of the pivotal civil-rights events in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1963, “the Negro Revolution” as he calls it, has been reissued in a UK paperback edition: Why We Can’t Wait (Penguin Classics, £9.99 (£9); 978-0-241-34544-3). A bibliography has been added.

Charles II had four surviving sib­lings when he raised his standard in 1642. Linda Porter’s 2016 Royal Reneg­ades: The children of Charles I and the English Civil Wars, now in paper­back, tells their stories as well as those of the King and his brother who succeeded him (Pan, £9.99 (£9); 978-1-4472-6760-7).
