Description - A Companion to African American Studies by Jane Anna Gordon

The Companion to African-American Studies is a groundbreaking re-appraisal of the history and future of African American studies. Each original essay by an expert scholar in the field covers its topic with authority and clarity. This book 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. 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.
