Review:

Monthly Review It is not too much or too early to call Robin D. G. Kelley, barely thirty years old, a leading black historian of the age. But it may not be enough...His work, seen in a certain light, is less about the past than the future...To listen carefully to the voices of discontent is not our only mission, but it may curiously be our most difficult. Kelley helps us open our eyes (and our heart) to the task.

Quarterly Black Review In a prose that is clear, full of real-world illustrations and sometimes outright funny, [Kelley] does something increasingly rare: he maintains political commitment while appreciating various kinds of aesthetic, social and political differences (rebel, rebel).

The Dallas Weekly This book is smart, noble, and potentially restorative. Read it, we need to.

Choice A wide-ranging, challenging book that deserves attention by anyone seriously interested in African American culture.

Darlene Clark Hine author of The State of Afro-American History: Past, Present & Future Race Rebels is African American history at its challenging and transformative best. Robin D. G. Kelley's exquisite interweaving of cultural and political dynamics illuminates obscure and unseen sites of Black working-class resistance throughout the 20th century. This is an extraordinary and provocative book.

Cornel West Robin Kelley is the preeminent historian of black popular culture writing today.
