MEDIA REVIEWS

"An important work for gaining an understanding of a heretofore little examined aspect of the eighteenth century." -- Bloomsbury Review


"The selection of texts is diverse and wide-ranging.... The most comprehensive anthology on the subject and deserves to become the standard text for students in eighteenth-century studies and American studies." -- British Journal for Eighteenth-Century Studies


"Carretta has done eighteenth-century studies an immeasurable service.... The definitive anthology of black writing of the eighteenth-century African diaspora, serving the purpose of both introduction to and contestation of the overlapping fields of American, British, religious, and African studies." -- Eighteenth-Century Fiction


"Most challenging and exhaustive, both in quality and quantity of research, presentation, scope, and premise. Carretta seeks to validate what for him is an unbroken link of unshackled black literary voices." -- Eighteenth-Century Studies


"This is the most comprehensive collection of writings by people of African descent on both sides of the Atlantic more than 200 years ago." -- Lexington Herald-Leader


"Cause for celebration.... Will no doubt contribute to the ongoing rethinking of the eighteenth-century canon." -- Year's Work in English Studies


"Establishes the canon of Black diasporic authors writing in English in the 18th century and makes the texts accessible to scholars and students." -- East-Central Intelligencer


"An excellent anthology." -- Times Literary Supplement
