Praise For Kent State: Four Dead in Ohio…
“[Backderf’s] expertly crafted chronicle of this defining moment in U.S. history serves as a deeply moving elegy for the victims. Readers may also draw from it sobering parallels to the deep divisions of contemporary times, again dangerously rife with media noise and misinformation muddying the waters.”
— Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review
“An incendiary corrective to the myths and misconceptions surrounding these events and a memorial to the lives lost or forever altered that should be required reading for all Americans.”
— Library Journal - STARRED review
"Deeply researched and gut-wrenching…”
— The New Yorker
“One of the masterpieces of the medium...a work of devastating emotional impact.”
— Rob Salkowitz
“The meticulous research is shown in more than two dozen pages of notes, confirming the sources from the Kent State University May 4 Collection about the shootings, but also Backderf’s personal research and interviews.”
— The Akron Beacon Journal
“Kent State is meticulously researched…Backderf is in total artistic control of his material.”
— Cleveland Review of Books
