"Tommy Lott has put together a genuinely novel, interesting, comprehensive, and timely text... Professor Lott has a reputation not only for creative and insightful work, but also for being a careful, precise and responsible editor in preparing texts.

African-American Philosophy is a topically organized collection of classical and contemporary articles on a wide range of social and political issues. Ideal for introductory courses that deal with African-American thought, this text includes an introduction along with a list of further readings after each section and a bibliography of historical and recent work in the field. Critically challenging essays are organized under sections on Antebellum Critical Thought, Emigrationist and Diaspora Thought, Assimilation and Social Uplift, Contemporary Black Feminist Thought, Civil Rights and Civil Disobedience, Marxism and Social Progress, Rebellion and Radical Thought, Social Activism Reconsidered, Black Women Writers on Rape, and Alienation and Self-Respect. The readings in this anthology represent substantial extracts, and in some cases complete works, by important nineteenth- and twentieth-century social and political thinkers.
