To Wake the Nations by Eric J. Sundquist
Book DescriptionThis 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.

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.

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.
