Sinopsis:

A Season for Justice: The Life and Times of Civil Rights Lawyer Morris Dees [May 01, 1991] Morris Dees and Steve Fiffer ...

From Library Journal:

After Federal Judge Frank Johnson, noted civil rights lawyer Dees is the "second most hated man in Alabama." As he admits in this brash and boastful autobiography, "you've got to be doing something good to get so many folks mad at you." The grandson of a Klansman, he used the proceeds from the sale of a successful business to co-found the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Alabama. Dedicated to fighting racial injustice, Dees won such notable cases as the desegregation of the Montgomery YMCA and the defense of Joan Little, a black woman accused of murdering her white jailer after he raped her. With the creation of Klanwatch in 1980, he fought the Klu Klux Klan in the courts, triumphing in the 1987 landmark civil suit that bankrupted the KKK and that gave its headquarters to the mother of a lynching victim. While Dees's self-congratulatory tone can be off-putting, his description of his Alabama childhood and his growing realization that segregation was an evil that had to be destroyed makes this book a necessary purchase for all libraries.
