This text/reference is visually attractive, with a nice balance of text and graphics maps, historical photos, photos of prominent people, and tabular presentations of data. Thirteen chapters examine African origins, the trans-Atlantic journey, African resistance to enslavement, the slave experience, African-American resistance to slavery, the abolition movement, the Civil War, effects of emancipation, killings and lynchings during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, segregation, the civil rights movement, African-American achievements, and social and economic realities. Appropriate (and probably essential) for public and school libraries (although the price seems high). Lacks an index of maps and tables, making it difficult to determine quickly what kinds of data are available where. 10x12". Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
