Reviews

"A generation before A. Philip Randolph, Adam Clayton Powell Jr., and Ella Baker, there was George Edwin Taylor. Rich in detail, this compelling story sheds light on black labor struggles in the Upper Midwest and brings to life an American civil rights hero and pioneer of independent black politics at the turn of the twentieth century."--Omar H. Ali, author of "In the Balance of Power: Independent Black Politics and Third Party Movements in the United States"

"The best piece of historical detective work I have seen since John Hope Franklin's work on George Washington Williams. At every turn it brings new findings and insights about the political experiences of African Americans. Superb and pioneering work."--Hanes Walton Jr., author of "American Politics and the African American Quest for Universal Freedom"

"An excellent biography of a forgotten but important leader." --"The Annals of Iowa"
"Mouser's biography is a triumph of detective work conducted over many years. . . . [T]hanks to Mouser's quoting of many of Taylor's editorials and political platforms in full, we do get a chance to ponder his political statements in detail and thus get a glimpse into a world of northern black politics that has so often been neglected."--Stephen Tuck, "Presidential Studies Quarterly"
