Reviews

As Morrison (Jazz) writes in her pointed opening essay, the Thomas controversy last year both raised and buried issues of profound national significance. This collection . . . powerfully advances the debate . . . cordially but relentlessly lays out the legal history of the civil rights movement . . . describes the crisis in the response by black organizations, skillfully skewers the neoaccommodationist support of Thomas among black liberals . . . exemplifies James Baldwin's observation that white Americans don't know how to deal with a black who falls outside of their expectations. . . shows an example of how even militant feminists can be snookered when the issue is racial identity.
