From the Jacket

This book begins in 1901, when Booker T. Washington at the age of forty-five was approaching the zenith of his fame and influence, and ends with his death in 1915. It is a biographical study in the sense that its focus is on the complex, enigmatic figure of Washington, the most powerful black minority-group boss of his time.

Louis R. Harlan is at University of Maryland, College Park.

"Will stand as one of the significant American biographies of this generation. Harlan's style is easy and readable, his knowledge of the subject profound, his research seemingly exhaustive."--Journal of Southern History
