From the Publisher"African Americans in Science: an Encyclopedia of People and Progress is an excellent two-volume reference for either high school or college-level collections covering the essential scientific contributions of blacks from colonial to modern times. From details on over 100 leading scientists, institutions, and organizations dedicated to helping the Afro-American scientists to issue-centered entries on important topics and the role of historically black colleges in providing opportunities in the sciences, this is an excellent reference for anyone studying Afro-American contributions in general, or science in particular."
Midwest Book Review - The Bookwatch
"This two-volume reference work is a fascinating read. . . . This resource is highly recommended for public, community college, and academic libraries."
"This book fills a niche in our literature by providing detailed information about over 100 leading African American scientists. They cover virtually all fields of science:…Finally there is a discussion on important issue related subjects from the Tuskegee syphilis experiment to organizations oriented to providing opportunities for African Americans in the sciences."
"This resource appears to be the first to provide a detailed look at the accomplishments of African American scientists. . . . BOTTOM LINE: This important resource, authored by an expert on the subject, fills a void and belongs not only in every academic and college/university library but also in high school and community libraries. Highly recommended."
Library Journal, Starred Review
"This is a welcome addition to the collection of works available on African Americans in the sciences. Independent
scholar Carey includes entries on people, fields of inquiry, and many institutions that have been important in the
progress of black scientists. . . . Summing Up: Recommended. Academic collections supporting lower-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers; general readers."
"This set references the progress African Americans have made in our society. . . . Recommended."
