Editorial Reviews

Review


"C. Vann Woodward's Strange Careeer is one of the most important works to an American historian of any period. Not only is Strange Career a great work of history, it is history. It is still enthralling students today."--Carlos Blanton, Rice University


"This classic study of the history of segregation in the United States still has much to teach us."--The Diversity Factor


"A unique, revealing, and 'eye-opening' volume that deals with a most sensitive aspect of U.S. history."--Arthur E. Chapman, University of Miami


Praise for previous editions:


"Excellent perspective of development of Jim Crow laws in South and , what is unusual, in the North. The revision has a good analysis of the irony of modern black separatism."--Ben F. Fordney, James Madison Univ.


"A witty, learned, and unsettling book...a book of permanent significance."--Robert Penn Warren


"A landmark in the history of American race relations."--David Herbert Donald


"I have used this work as a required reading in my freshman-level U.S. history class for twenty-two years and found it a most appropriate assignment."--Peter Sehlinger, Indiana University, Indianapolis


"Absolutely useful."--Jennie La Monte, University of New Hampshirs
