"History at its best--clear, intelligent, moving. Paula Giddings has written a book as priceless as its subject."--Toni Morrison

"A groundbreaking biography gives this warrior her due."--O magazine

"A hearty thumbs-up for this powerful retelling of her life."--Essence

"Ida B. Wells was an inspired journalist, an uncompromising civil libertarian, and a woman far ahead of her patriarchal times--a 'difficult' woman. Paula Giddings's monumental achievement restores this extraordinary contrarian to her place as one of the grand pace-setters of American social justice and female empowerment."--David Levering Lewis, Pulitzer Prize-Winning biographer of W.E.B. DuBois

"The best interpretation of black women and race and sex that we have."--Women's Review of Books on When and Where I Enter

"Paula J. Giddings IDA: A SWORD AMONG LIONS (Amistad) is a worthy biography of the vibrant crusader who led the nation's first campaign against lynching."--Vogue

A groundbreaking biography gives this warrior her due. --O magazine"

A hearty thumbs-up for this powerful retelling of her life. --Essence"
