The Shackles Within is a candid and comprehensive look back at the 1960's, perhaps the most dynamic period of change in our society during the twentieth century. The story revolves around two families, one in Florida and the other in Connecticut, whose destinies become forever linked when the two sons serve on the same Special Forces Unit in Vietnam. Hate and prejudice are the only true villains in the story, but these ancient conspirators prove to be much more than formidable adversaries. The degrading fabrics which they continue to worm into our lives, are exposed and put on trial for what they represent: the antithesis of all that is right and fair. An unpredictable and moving plot effectively runs the gamut of human emotions, but in the end the reader is left with an uplifting sense of hope that love and reason can overcome our worst learned behaviors.

A subtle, effective rhythm of truth surfacing through the racial rain..Adair adds an excellent increment to the quest for peace and harmony in a world where the trail often grows cold. A read, an education. Get it!

I feel that Alan Adair's book has opened the eyes of many people. A combination of humor and reality along with a down home flavor kept me reading just to find out what happened next. Looking forward to any sequel that may come from Mr. Adair.

Adair does not shy away from the use of raw language and racial slurs, and the result gives his work a thought-provoking edge. For those who did not live through this phenomenal decade of change, it offers a better understanding of how far we have progressed.
