"Ken Zogry's history of the Daily Tar Heel tells two engaging and interlocking stories--not only of a legendary student newspaper, but of the university whose adventures it fearlessly chronicles. It is eloquent and essential reading for us all."--Edwin M. Yoder Jr., Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of Lions at Lamb House
"This is not merely a history of the Daily Tar Heel; it is a history of the key battles that were fought over complex issues that faced the university and the state of North Carolina itself during much of the twentieth century and the early years of the twenty-first--issues that vex us yet."--Jack Betts, retired associate editor, the Charlotte Observer
"This is historical writing at its best--trenchant, lively, and engaging. Zogry reminds us that students, no less than faculty and administrators, have shaped the history of America's colleges and universities. At UNC, they often led in making the institution a refuge for open inquiry and free expression in a region that too often had little tolerance for either."--James L. Leloudis, author of To Right These Wrongs
