From the Publisher"Readers of Dislocating Race and Nation will profit from these fresh (and, to my mind, more fair-minded) readings of familiar figures and texts. . . . Levine demonstrates with exemplary clarity, erudition, and even optimism that 'alternative histories are always immanent in particular cultural moments.'"-
"A remarkable tome. [Levine] has broken new ground. . . . Stands as an exceptional study and an instructive contribution to the scholarly literature dealing with American literary history and cultural criticism. Levine helps us to think in new ways and in new categories. Intellectual and cultural historians will find this book an especially valuable addition to the scholarship in their fields. Literature professors across a wide spectrum of specialties will welcome this book as well."
"An important and provocative deconstruction of nineteenth-century American nationalism, race, and the literature where the two intersect."
-Literature & History
"Levine is at his best when recovering the forgotten history of African American intellectuals, such as Walker and Douglass, and showing how they responded to specific domestic events motivating their transnational imaginations."
-American Historical Review
"[A] provocative critical study. . . . Comprehensive and well documented. . . . Eloquent and refreshingly jargon free. Highly recommended."
