Written with passion and eloquence, they are full of ideas originally dismissed by a white, segregated academy that have now become part of the scholarly mainstream. Covering topics including slave resistance, black abolitionists, Reconstruction, and W. E. B. Du Bois, these essays demonstrate the critical connection between political commitment and the advancement of scholarship, while restoring Aptheker's central place as one of the founding scholars in the development of African American studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Whether you realize it or not, your thinking has been significantly influenced by Herbert Aptheker. More than anyone, Aptheker smashed the early twentieth-century image of slaves as 'docile, passive, parasitic, imitative.'"--Black Issues Book Review


"Historian Herbert Aptheker helped define African American history and redefine American history during his sixty-year career. . . . He truly deserves the outstanding reader that Foner and Marable have put together."--North Carolina Historical Review
