This volume makes a much-needed contribution to the field of Afro-American studies by providing subject access to a wealth of materials on the black experience in the Americas. Sources include titles generally considered to be reference tools, such as dictionaries, encyclopedias, catalogs, indexes, abstracts, bibliographies, and resource guides, as well as selected resources such as classic history texts and anthologies that fall outside the traditional reference area. Throughout, the emphasis is on the United States, although a significant number of citations from Canada, the Caribbean, and South America are also included. This index to Afro-American reference sources covers specific chapters and subdivisions within works in addition to providing general subject access to entire works that include helpful information on the black experience.

?In response to the proliferation of materials on the black experience, the compiler has developed a subject index to 190 reference tools and classic works in order to guide users to materials on the topic. The primary emphasis is on the U.S., but Canada, the Caribbean, and South America are included. International materials are selectively indexed. Traditional types of references works (dictionaries, encyclopedias, abstracts, etc.), individual chapters in larger works, and materials that provide reference information have been analyzed and organized by subject... The most valuable parts of the work are the list of cited works and the subject index. The list is a good current bibliography of works on Afro-American topics. The subject index provides access to the works as a whole and to chapters within them under headings such as African Cultural Survivals, Amistad Case -- Bibliography, and Colonization Movements -- Bibliography.?-Reference Books Bulletin
