From the Publisher
"An important study of the history of Black Power ideologies.... This thoughtful, provocative, and well-argued work is clearly written and will make a contribution to Black and American intellectual history."
—Darlene Clark Hine, Michigan State University
"...deeply enrich[es] American historiography and take[s it]s place as part of what can be called a renaissance of interest in the study of African-American history."
—In These Times
"Black Power Ideologies is a significant contribution to scholarship, for while there are hundreds of books on Black Power, this work takes the concept from the colonial era to the 1960s, and provides an accompanying political analysis to its historical development. McCartney's treatment of Black Power thought in the 18th Century is at once illuminating and path-breaking; no author has as yet extended the concept of Black Power beyond the 19th Century. This is must reading for those who wish to observe Black abolitionists and colonizers in a new and fascinating perspective."
—John C. Walter, Director, Afro-American Studies, University of Washington, Seattle
