Review

[A] brilliant and perceptive study.--Journal of American History



A splendidly researched, beautifully written, and carefully argued exploration into the important connections between race and U.S. foreign policy. . . . Because of this original, imaginative, and generative work, we will never again be able to write about black history without understanding its international dimensions or write about U.S. foreign policy without realizing the crucial role [played by] race.--George Lipsitz, University of California, San Diego



This work is so well-researched, so well-written and so powerful in bringing light on heretofore neglected aspects of African-American, U.S., and global history, a number of scholars are going to have to retool and reconceptualize the manner in which they approach history and life itself.--Gerald Horne, director, Black Cultural Center, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill



Plummer's thoroughly researched and engaging book examines the neglected subject of the African American response to mid-20th-century US foreign policy and world events. . . . Plummer's conceptual view is first rate, especially on the Cold War period and the civil rights challenge to US foreign policy.--Choice



This book makes an impressive and much-needed contribution to scholarship not only on the fields of twentieth-century African-American and domestic U.S. history but also on the study of public influences on U.S. foreign policy and of transnational contacts among activists opposed to colonialism and racial discrimination. The quantity and quality of Brenda Gayle Plummer's research and the sophistication and detail of her argument are especially impressive.--American Historical Review



This is an impressive book. It is extensively researched in a variety of sources, well written, provocative in its interpretations, and even with its justifiable flashes of anger over past injustices to blacks by the traditional American establishment, judiciously reasoned.--International History Review
