MEDIA REVIEWS
In this pathbreaking book, law professor Sharon Rush raises critical questions about the iconic American novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, giving us a controversial and deeply critical analysis of the racist context, text, and implications of Mark Twain's masterpiece. Rush does not argue that all young readers should be kept away from the book, but rather that Huck Finn should not be government-mandated reading for children in elementary, middle, and high schools because most of them are not emotionally and intellectually prepared to deal with a book that presents the 19th century United States in such an intensely racist and white supremacist fashion. -- Joe R. Feagin, Texas A&M University
...powerful and moving...This is more than a cognitive critique of racism and a position statement, but the heartfelt appeal of a mother and a lover of democracy-a carefully woven project that elicits empathy slowly but surely. -- Eileen O'Brien, College of William and Mary
