Pressestimmen"A truly impressive achievement in its range of approaches, depth of analysis, and variety of sources, this book should immediately become the definitive text on the subject of reparations for black Americans."-- Charles W. Mills, John Evans Professor of Moral and Intellectual Philosophy, Northwestern University "It will be far harder to dismiss the deeply resonant and persistent demand for reparations in the wake of this remarkable collection of interdisciplinary research and historical documentation. This monumental work is ideal for teaching how history and policy intersect."--David Roediger, Kendrick C. Babcock Professor of History, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
