Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Just when it seems unlikely that anyone can have anything further to say about the issue of race in Mark Twain's masterpiece, along comes this little volume. It argues with passion backed by impressive historical research that The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is not the botched work of a racist writer but rather a masterfully controlled and devastating attack on racism and slavery. Chadwick-Joshua (American studies, Dallas Inst. for the Humanities) reconstructs the mindset of 19th-century readers more aware than today's of the terrible inhumanity of slavery. She discusses the way movie versions have undercut the satirical thrust of the novel and shows how Twain creates in Jim a fully human character and uses the numerous other African Americans in his novel to shatter stereotypes. Perhaps the freshest aspect of this book is the way Chadwick-Joshua shows how throwaway details operate to sharpen and unify Twain's satire. Highly recommended for all libraries.--Charles Crawford Nash, Cottey Coll., Nevada, MO
