To Wake the Nations by Eric J. Sundquist

Book Description

This text, winner of the 1993 Christian Gauss Award of Phi Beta Kappa, presents a major re-evaluation of the glory years of American literature - from 1830 to 1930 - that shows how white literature and black literature form a single interwoven tradition. By examining African America's contested relation to the intellectual and literary forms of white culture, Sundquist reconstructs the main lines of American literary tradition. He considers each text he discusses against a background of history, law, literature, politics, religion, folklore, music, and dance to produce a commentary on the American literary tradition.

After the Holocaust by Eric J. Sundquist After the Holocaust, Hardback (September 2011)

For the last decade scholars have been questioning the idea that the Holocaust was not talked about in any way until well into the 1970s. This collection exposes a serious misreading of the past on which rest the controversial claims for a 'Holocaust industry'.

King's Dream by Eric J. Sundquist King's Dream, Paperback (August 2009)

'I have a dream' - no words are more widely recognized, or more often repeated, than those called out from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial by Martin Luther King, Jr, in 1963. Exploring the 'I have a dream' speech, this title places it in the history of American debates about racial justice, debates as old as the nation itself.

Strangers in the Land by Eric J. Sundquist Strangers in the Land, Paperback (September 2008)

The importance of blacks for Jews and Jews for blacks in conceiving of themselves as Americans, when both remained outsiders to the privileges of full citizenship, is a matter of voluminous but perplexing record. This book investigates this record.

Oxford W.E.B.DuBois Reader by Eric J. Sundquist Oxford W.E.B.DuBois Reader, Paperback (July 1996)
