Editorial Reviews

Review

"Thoroughly researched and well-informed, this extraordinarily rich and well-written study reveals hitherto neglected aspects of Black American life and thought." Wilson J. Moses, author of Alexander Crummell: A Study of Civilization and Discontent "A terrific book that fills an important gap in political theory and offers fresh interpretations of such figures as Douglass, Du Bois, and Locke." Lawrie Balfour, author of Evidence of Things Not Said: James Baldwin and the Promise of American Democracy "An arresting, insightful, and compelling look at environmental thought through the eyes of African Americans." Carolyn Merchant, author of The Columbia Guide to American Environmental History"

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The author has written an academic treatise that deals with social injustice. The fact that an oppressed people forced to labor in the fields and who endure the horrors of slavery might not see environmental thought as a priority is not a surprise. The fact that some have and are beginning to is heartening. She uses many words to state the obvious and say very little that is enlightening.
