"Professor Baker offers the richest analysis we have of black literature in its full cultural context. A superb literary critic, a sophisticated student of culture and society, Baker is himself a very talented writer, deeply engaged in the literary-cultural 'journey' he describes. The result is a major work of interdisciplinary scholarship and humanistic criticism which will remain for years to come an authoritative treatment of the subject. "The Journey Back" is a landmark not only in the study of black literature but in American studies in general. No one interested in our culture can afford to ignore it." Sacvan Bercovitch, Columbia University"
