Although manuscript collections and extensive scholarly literature are available on blacks in politics, the most recent bibliography is Ronald Walters and Cedric Johnson's topically arranged, nonannotated Bibliography of African American Leadership (CH, Dec'00), and the only bibliography to specifically treat American populism is Robert H. Weems' A Populist Bibliography (1994). The authors have mined that material, in addition to newspapers, theses, dissertations, and Web sites (arranged by publication type), for what it reveals about blacks in agrarian activism around the 1890s. For Adam and Gaither (nonteaching faculty at Prairie View A&M Univ.), this bibliography is their only contribution to the literature. Readers expecting critical analyses may be disappointed with the brief descriptive entries, which cite studies specifically addressing black populism; other relevant topics are race relations, disenfranchisement, particular white politicians (e.g., Ben Tillman), labor, and agricultural history. Occasionally entries describe works that, while contextually significant, give only passing or minimal coverage to blacks or populism. This is a welcome bibliography of items from diverse viewpoints and different periods. ^BSumming Up: Recommended. Academic collections. J. J. Dickens University of Arkansas at Monticello

Long Description
In recent years the study of the Southern Populist movement at the turn of the century has flourished. Despite the significant new research in the field there is no single annotated bibliography that covers the literature and the formation of the Farmer's Alliance through the present. Of more immediate interest to multicultural studies is the role of African Americans in the movement. This annotated bibliography examines relevant works on the relationships between African Americans and the Southern Populist movement in hope of leading to further scholarship and understanding of this period. This book is the first of its kind in its subject area. This bibliography presents a significant amount of new material to scholars, including items not cited in most of the literature on the topic. The numerous citations are presented in their correct form for the first time, which will improve researching and locating pertinent materials. This work brings to life an almost forgotten era in African American history, disproving myths of a passive race and a constant strife between blacks and whites. This book will demand attention from academic historians, graduate students and researchers in history, African American studies, and political science.
