Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Countering the idea that the only ethnically African people in the British Isles in the early part of the century were students destined to return to Africa, the author shows a wide variety of African- descended permanent residents and discusses their backgrounds and the lives they led. He devotes chapters to musicians and other entertainers, athletes, those serving the royal government, the black bourgeoisie, and the working class. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
