Editorial Reviews


“Anthony’s fascinating biography of this ‘world citizen in the Black Atlantic’ sheds a good deal of light on the origins of Yergan’s radical engagement in the 1930s and 1940s.”
-Radical History Review

“Beautifully written and accessible . . . Max Yergan is a remarkable book which reflects prodigious and imaginative research. It is more than a biography; it is a walk through a variety of political and institutional movements that have substantially shaped the history of the black world, from the United States to South Africa.”
-Robin D.G. Kelley,author of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination

“As the title of this provocative work suggests, Max Yergan certainly is one of the more intriguing figures of the previous century. . . . This biography includes a particularly strong bibliography and a detailed index.”
-Gerald Horne,Journal of American History

“The multiple lives of the man David Anthony explores in these pages are fascinating, tragic, and remarkably little-known. The left-to-right journeys of many white American intellectuals are familiar, but the trajectory of this talented black man seems more dramatic than any of them: from mentor of a key African National Congress leader to enthusiastic backer of apartheid, from friend of Paul Robeson and target of FBI surveillance to someone eulogized in the National Review. Max Yergan’s odyssey through the twentieth century is a prism through which to view an era's dreams and conflicts on four continents.”
-Adam Hochschild,author of King Leopold's Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror, and Heroism in Colonial Africa

“Anthony has done an admirable job making sense of the sometimes contradictory sources related to Yergan’s life, and the scope of his research is truly remarkable.”
-Safundi: The Journal of South African and American Studies

More like turncoat. He spoke against Communism on a visit to South Africa and in 1964 he praised aspects of the South African governments "separate development" plan!!! Sad and sickening.
