W.E.B. Du Bois was one of the most prolific visionaries in 20th-century America. And yet, it was not until the 1980s that his complete writings became available. Given the breadth of his interests, the World of W.E.B. DuBois was created to provide a relatively short journey through his views on virtually all aspects of 20th-century life. More than 1,000 quotations are provided, grouped into 20 subject areas. The volume concludes with a subject index to provide additional access.

Editorial Reviews

?The major thoughts, ideas, predictions, and judgments from DuBois's voluminous published and unpublished writings have been selected, arranged, classified, and indexed in this work. Following an introductory overview of the life of this controversial educator, journalist, and civil rights leader, quotations are grouped under 20 broad chapters, e.g., working class, politics, and racism, then alphabetically arranged under relevant headings. Quotations in "War and Peace," for example, range from "armament" to "World War II." While most quotes deal with the situation of African Americans, DuBois's observations over seven decades embody a broad range of social issues. Most selections adequately convey DuBois's opinions; however, as they are taken out of context, a few may leave the reader bewildered as to their intent and/or relevance. Fortunately, the original sources of all quotes are meticulously cited. This compilation by an emeritus black studies academician is recommended for race relations and intellectual history collections.?-Library Journal
