Whoever has tried to understand the experience of African Americans in the United States is well aware of its controversial nature. Highly regarded scholars often differ markedly in their interpretations of empirical findings. For many years, for example, the views of Melville J. Herskovits and E. Franklin Frazier about the extent of African influence on American Negro life were hotly debated. More recent controversies include among others, the polemics over Stanley Elkins' interpretation of slavery, over the Moynihan Report, and over William Styron's The Confessions of Nat Turner, all dating from the late twentieth century.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Reviews on both Volume 1, Slavery and its Aftermath, and Volume 2, Old Memories, New Moods

"These two volumes provide a compendium of the kaleidoscope of roots, patterns, consequences, and meaning of the black protest."

--Tommy Rogers, The Journal of Negro History

"Taken together, the two volumes of the Americans from Africa series provide a comprehensive selection of articles on the black experience.... Peter I. Rose has done a masterful job of illuminating the central debates concerning the past, present, and future of the American Negro."

--William McCord, Social Forces

"This collection of papers is one of the best of an outpouring of new readers on race issues.... Whether looked upon as matters of serious social policy or as crucial questions for further social research, responsible resolution of these issues still requires a great deal of important homework. Rose is to be congratulated for reminding us of this so powerfully with this thoughtfully organized reader."

--Paul S. Denise, Contemporary Sociology
