Prominent Americanist Godfrey Hodgson has authored a dozen books about politics in the United States. Covering presidential elections, political society, and key players in the wheel of American politics, The University of Michigan Press will offer his latest work titled Martin Luther King.

Touted by the publisher as “… ideal for new students of King or those looking to revisit the dramatic events of the era,” Hodgson’s book will release on January 18, 2010. Of no   coincidence, this Monday the 18th also marks the holiday commemorating the life and legacy of civil rights activist Martin Luther King.

Mr. Hodgson has also worked as a newspaper and magazine journalist. He has reported through media circles including television and documentary film. Additionally, he has been a university teacher and most recently acts as a visiting journalism professor at City University in London.*
