Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In a memo prepared to assist Gunnar Myrdal's study on American Negroes, Bunche offered biting insights into black leadership in the 1940s and glimpses of his own thinking as he too was developing as a black leader. Bunche was a renowned scholar later named undersecretary to the UN and the first person of color to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. In this previously unpublished work, Bunche outlined six very basic leadership types: dynamic and aggressive, cautious and timid, stooges and professional politicians, symbolically important, prestigious, and those appointed by whites. He saw black leadership as motivated primarily by notions of escape--either from racism and oppression or from the deprivations suffered by blacks as a whole. He contrasted the race man and the Uncle Tom, examining idealists, political prostitutes, and self-appointed leaders and giving as much attention to local lights as to national figures. Given Bunche's eventual rise to prominence as a black leader, and the criticism his integrationist politics engendered from black nationalists, it is particularly revealing to read this early work.

Review

Given Bunche's eventual rise to prominence as a black leader, and the criticism his integrationist politics engendered from black nationalists, it is particularly revealing to read this early work."--Booklist "A timely and penetrating appreciation of Ralph Bunche's benchmark study of the African American leadership class in the early decades of the last century." --David Levering Lewis, Julius Silver University Professor and Professor of History, NYU "Jonathan Holloway has performed a wonderful service in editing and introducing Bunche's A Brief and Tentative Analysis of Negro Leadership. For scholars and teachers in the field it has long been a source of frustration that this material has not been available. Bunche's insights and interpretations provide an important perspective on a key moment in the shaping of modern black American politics, and Holloway's introduction very usefully situates Bunche and his analysis in the context of the time." --Adolph Reed, Professor of Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania and author of W.E.B. Du Bois and American Political Thought: Fabianism and the Color Line "Ralph Bunche's stature as one of the key African American intellectuals of the twentieth-century continues to grow. Jonathan Holloway has done a great service by bringing Bunche's unpublished work on leadership to light. Skillfully guiding the reader, Holloway's introduction and editorial notes provide a perfect balance of information and interpretation, adding much to our understanding of this important and yet often neglected figure." --Nikhil Pal Singh, author of Black is a Country: Race and the Unfinished Struggle for Democracy "This work is a welcome addition to African American studies as well as to social and cultural history." --CHOICE "Provides key insight into Black leadership at the dawn of the modern Civil Rights Movement, and forces a reconsideration of Bunche's legacy as a reformer and the historical meaning of his early involvement in the Civil Rights Movement."--Ebony
