Although not as well known as the celebrated Souls of Black Folk, this work by American sociologist and cofounder of the NAACP Du Bois was the foundational work for generations of scholars of Africa and African Americans, argues Gregg (history, Richard Stockton College) in his new afterword. Originally published in 1915, the work synthesizes historical, anthropological, archaeological, and other information in an attempt to present a general overview of the African diaspora. In the final chapter, Du Bois hints at the fuller intent of the work in his discussion of Pan- Africanism as a solution to problems facing his people. Annotation c.
