Warren replies to editorial cuts.  He defends the inclusion in the book--and the broader significance--of Powell, Wilkins, Farmer, and Rowan.  He points out that a suggested area to cut from the Martin Luther King, Jr., section actually "put his whole action in Montgomery in perspective."  He also defends the need for "some sort of summing up" and an indication of his own perspective in the final chapter.

To compensate for the restored length, he has made "incidental" cuts and removed a section about Walker.
