Editorial Reviews

Review

"... it's really an excellent book. Not only is it tremendously readable-I read it practically in one sitting-but it is so deeply and meticulously researched, and so closely referenced, that I was quite in awe of the work that went into it....."
-
Bridget Brereton


I feel [this] scholarly work will be a major contribution to Black women's history across the Diaspora.

- Rosalyn Terborg-Penn, Professor of History, Morgan State University


One has to unreservedly compliment Dr. Tony Martin for another major contribution to knowledge production of the African Diaspora. It reveals the historian at his best [with] numerous archives consulted, well-documented interviews and wide ranging analyses and a treasure trove of appendices for the future scholar.
- Carole Boyce Davies

a considerable and valuable contribution to African and Caribbean studies  [and to] African feminism [and]  the history of black people in Britain
 [significantly interrogates] Ashwood  as a political actor in her own right....
Extensive original research [in] a well-structured and
fluently-written book
      
- Ama Biney, African and Asian Studies


It is a tribute to Martin's integrity as a scholar that in spite of his clear and unapologetic bias in favour of his hero Marcus Garvey, he has been able to produce such a balanced account of Amy's life.

-Ian Randle, President, Ian Randle Publishers, Jamaica
