"The Rise and Fall of the Associated Negro Press is a brilliant model for writing black transnational history and for appreciating the contradictory results of desegregation for mid-twentieth century African American media, black freedom, and Pan-Africanism."--Erik S. McDuffie, author of Sojourning for Freedom: Black Women, American Communism, and the Making of Black Left Feminism

"An immersive read, a welcome contribution to our understanding of the evolving relationship between African Americans and the media during Jim Crow and its demise. . . . Highly recommended."--People's World

"This brilliant and masterfully written work broadens understandings of the vital work and historical agency of the black press, in particular the domestic and international coverage and political relationships forged by theΓ‚ Associated Negro Press and its astute and complicated founder Claude Barnett."--Taj Frazier, author of The East Is Black: Cold War China and the Black Radical Imagination
"Horne, celebrated author of over 30 eye-opening works on class and race history, harnesses the varied details of The Rise and Fall of the Associated Negro Press in a style that is at once academic and fittingly narrative. The work is thus an accessible treasure trove of political and social involvements and insights spanning almost all the continents. " --Publishing Research Quarterly
