Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In this exquisite investigation of continuity and discontinuity in the past as experienced and remembered, Bethel (sociology, Lander Univ., South Carolina) explores how blacks in the North from 1775 to 1860 reformulated their collective past into a politicized racial identity that informed a moral community of collective action. Bethel's evocative reading of the times and political possibilities and realities as blacks crafted a group identity to mobilize themselves and others offers a suggestive complement to historian James O. Horton's Free People of Color: Inside the African American Community (LJ 5/1/93) and his new In Hope of Liberty: Culture, Community, and Protest among Northern Free Blacks, 1700-1860 (Oxford Univ., 1997). Highly recommended for collections on the pre-Civil War United States or African Americans.?Thomas Davis, Arizona State Univ., Tempe
