Berman provides the definitive history of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, from its inception to the present. He keenly traces the politically motivated reasons to weaken the VRA and racial overtones that remain in efforts to eliminate it. Reader Zingarelli proves a perfect choice for this production. With a deep, aged voice, his narration commands attention and keeps listeners apace throughout. He captures hints of Berman’s tone and emotion and skillfully adjusts timing, pace, and emphasis to draw out some of the more dramatic elements of the narrative. A Farrar, Straus and Giroux hardcover. (Aug.)
