Overview

This study has been one of the basic books in America and on the subject since the first edition was published in 1955. Its popularity continued to soar with the additional information contained in the Second Revised Edition published ten years later. Of that edition, Robert Penn Warren commented, "A witty, learned, and unsettling book. The depth of the unsettling becomes more obvious day by day; which is a way of saying that it is a book of permanent significance."

C. Vann Woodward's The Strange Career of Jim Crow is an important text in the canon of American history. I first read it as an American history graduate student, and this new edition, with an afterword by William McFeely will be the delight to a new generation of graduate students who will quickly learn that they can skip reading Woodward's short book and glean the entire thesis and important criticisms of his argument from the afterword. Shame on them if do that! I encourage every educated American to carefully read this small book. It is a classic in the field of American history.

I really didn't like this book as much as I expected, I pictured it less historical and to have more flow to it.
