Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

Douglas Adams was born in Cambridge, England in 1952. He has written for radio, television and theater and has worked as a hospital reporter, barn builder, radio producer, and script editor. His bestsellers include The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, Life, the Universe and Everything, So Long and Thanks for All the Fish, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, and The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul. Adams died in 2001.

Because he decided to downplay civil rights to such an extent at the beginning of his presidency, he encouraged white segregationists...to believe they could uphold the system of Jim Crow and racial apartheid well into the 1960s. And this, in turn, encouraged black demonstrators to adopt much more aggressive tactics and to call for much more controversial solutions to the race problem.
