Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Holloway has fused rich intellectual history with vivid biography to produce an engrossing exploration in the sociology of racial knowledge. This is an exceptional book. (David Levering Lewis, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning W. E. B. Du Bois: Biography of a Race, 1868-1919 and W. E. B. Du Bois: The Fight for Equality and the American Century, 1919-1963)

This highly readable and insightful work provides us with compelling group and individual portraits of Bunche, Frazier, and Harris as social scientists, as thinkers, and as intellectual activists. (Waldo E. Martin Jr., University of California, Berkeley)
