Class more than race was the key to Garvey (1887-1940) and his Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), argues Stein (History, City Coll., CUNY). Frustrated bourgeois expectations motivated Garvey and shaped the UNIAwith the Black Star Line steamship company at its coreas a middle-class movement that pushed business enterprise as a solution to black problems while taking on the black elite's rhetoric of Pan-Africanism and discovering the effectiveness of mass mobilization, she says. Challenging E. David Cronin, Theodore Draper, Robert A. Hill, Tony Martin, Theodore Vincent, et al., Stein offers a provocative but overreaching view and contributes a comparative analysis of black society in the United States, the Caribbean, and West Africa. Recommended for African-American and social-history collections. Thomas J. Davis, History Dept., Howard Univ., Washington, D.C.
