Overview

Cedric Robinson traces the emergence of Black political cultures in the United States from slave resistances in the 16th and 17th centuries to the civil rights movements of the present. Drawing on the historical record, he argues that Blacks have constructed both a culture of resistance and a culture of accommodation based on the radically different experiences of slaves and free Blacks.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This latest work by noted intellectual historian and political scientist Robinson Univ. of California, Santa Barbara provides a concise overview of the development of black movements in the United States, from the Colonial era to the Civil Rights campaigns of the Sixties. The central theme here is the tension between American ideals of liberty and evolving patterns of racial injustice. The author grounds his text in a thorough grasp of the relevant literatures and writes in a clean prose style that will be accessible to high school seniors on up. But his analysis and insights will also be of interest to specialists in the field. Recommended for high school and academic libraries.Kent Worcester, Social Science Research Council, New York
