MEDIA REVIEWS
". . .a valid and accurate critique of Western essentialism and its materialism. " * Journal of African Philosophy *
This is the first book available devoted to exploring race in the context of rhetorical studies and it deserves a close reading from communication scholars. Clearly racism is a subject with which the author has grappled with rigor and foresight. -- Detine L. Bowers, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, QUARTERLY JOURNAL OF SPEECH
