eBook of the Month

A Companion to African-American Studies

Edited by Lewis R. Gordon (Temple University) and Jane Anna Gordon (Temple University)

Blackwell Publishing, 2006

In celebration of African-American History Month, NetLibrary has partnered with Blackwell Publishing to offer A Companion to African-American Studies as the February eBook of the Month. A groundbreaking re-appraisal of the history and future of African-American studies, the Companion includes original essays by expert scholars in the field and covers each topic with authority and clarity.

Edited by Lewis R. Gordon and Jane Anna Gordon, A Companion to African-American Studies is a definitive intervention at a critical time in the history of race relations and in the academic field of race and ethnic studies. Bringing together a dazzling array of established and emergent voices, the Companion opens with a series of reflections from those who waged pitched battles to establish African-American studies as a bona fide academic discipline and captures the dynamic interaction of African-American studies with other fields of inquiry. Students and scholars of the field will find this to be an exciting and comprehensive overview, and an ideal resource for study and further research.
