Books By Author Thomas C. Holt

Children of Fire by Thomas C. Holt Children of Fire, Hardback (March 2012)

Ordinary people do not experience history as it is taught by historians. The same people who lived through the Civil War and the eradication of slavery also dealt with the hardships of Reconstruction, so why do we almost always treat them separately? This title challenges this convention to tell the story of generations of African Americans.

Problem of Race in the Twenty-First Century by Thomas C. Holt Problem of Race in the Twenty-First Century, Paperback (April 2002)

An analysis of the changing circumstances of race and racism. This book questions the simultaneous veneration of black celebrities in politics, popular culture and sport, with the diminishing of the average African-American citizen in modern society.

Problem of Freedom by Thomas C. Holt Problem of Freedom, Paperback (November 1991)

"Holt greatly extends and deepens our understanding of the emancipation experience when, for just over a century, the people of Jamaica struggled to achieve their own vision of freedom and autonomy against powerful conservative forces." -- David Barry Gaspar.
