Editorial Reviews

Burkett has convincingly demonstrated that earlier writers...were wrong in their treatment of Garvey's relations with the black clergy and in many of their assumptions about the religious elements of Garveyism...this carefully researched and insightful study is a major contribution to our understanding of the Garvey phenomenon.
