Full Text Reviews
Appeared in Library Journal on 1988-05-01:
This book collects 17 essays written over the past 20 years by a veteran scholar of U.S. race relations. Although respectful of the ``class'' interpretation of black-white relations, Fredrickson argues that it should not obscure the ``cultural and psychological dimensions.'' The essays are grouped into three sections: the intellectual history of the race question through Reconstruction; the historiography of slavery; and an examination of the question from a ``cross-cultural and interdisciplinary perspective.'' Informative introductory essays to each section help weave the pieces together. For research libraries. Thomas E. Schott, Office of History, Tinker Air Force Base, Okla. (c) Copyright 2010.
