Book Description

"Demonstrate[s] excellence marked by the transgressive verve of [an] innovative and progressive scholar. . . . An extremely successful attempt to move with intellectual rigor and consistency toward a meaningful interpretation of a world mapped in blood by cruelty and violence."--Southern Literary Journal

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Dr. Painter is a painstaking historian with excellent depth of references provided. The subject matter is fascinating and the various essays provide interesting perspectives. However, some of the essays stop short of my expectations having listened to her on BookTV extended interview. After a while, I got the feeling of redundancy and deeper thoughts not developed or explained.

Nevertheless, I recommend the book and look forward to reading her next history of the three ages of white history in this nation.
