'The essays here complicate the received wisdoms about black/Irish relations in a series of case studies that add greatly to our knowledge of this fractured relationship.'
- Alan Rice, Journal of Transatlantic Studies
'The essays provide excellent points for further investigations into the subtle nuances and histories that shape our understanding of people and ideas.'
- Roxana Oltean, European Journal of American Studies
'The Black and Green Atlantic exceeds its fine individual contributions in one important respect: by combining a range of competing approaches, the book as a whole puts their key concepts to the test in ways rarely found in a monograph. In doing so, it will provide an invaluable point for future work in the field.' - Journal of American Studies
