Product description

Review

"Highly recommended."-J.R. Wendland,CHOICE "Horne's work provides readers with a new framework to imagine diplomatic relationships between world powers in the nineteenth century, something especially important as historians begin to blend racial, cultural, and social history with diplomatic history in an effort to globalize American history... Horne's meticulously researched monograph will provoke thought and discussion on the relationship between the peculiar institution and diplomacy in this important and growing field of study."-H-Net Reviews "Gerald Horne's Negro Comrades of the Crown is a major addition to this scholarship, principally because of its author's vast erudition. Horne is a remarkable researcher and goes deeper than anyone before into the minutiae of Anglo-American diplomatic relations on this vexed topic."-Journal of the Early Republic "Now that the old feudal order is experiencing a resurgence with the assistance of wealth, a corporate media and official historians, Gerald Horne, one of our most original historians, reminds us of the alliance of Africans, Europeans and Native Americans that fought against its antecedent anachronism. In this brilliant, stunning book, Horne shows us how the issue of slavery still intrudes upon our national discussions."-Ishmael Reed,John D. MacArthur Fellow "Gerald Horne's book is a tribute to the international struggle of Africans for human dignity. It also reveals the unstated fears and unearths the historical justification in the souls of white folks-recognizing the institutional silence that this book aims to pierce."-Black Agenda Report "Although not the easiest read, Horne's book is a valuable contribution on a subject of profound interest and significance." -Journal of American History --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
