              In Battle for Peace frankly documents Du Bois's experiences following his attempts to mobilize Americans against the emerging conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union. A victim of McCarthyism, Du Bois endured a humiliating trial-he was later acquitted-and faced pol...itical persecution for over a decade. Part autobiography and part political statement, In Battle for Peace remains today a powerful analysis of race in America.

              W. E. B. Du Bois was a public intellectual, sociologist, and activist on behalf of the African American community. He profoundly shaped black political culture in the United States through his founding role in the NAACP, as well as internationally through the Pan-African movement.... DuBois's sociological and historical research on African-American communities and culture broke ground in many areas, including the history of the post-Civil War Reconstruction period. Du Bois was also a prolific author of novels, autobiographical accounts, innumerable editorials and journalistic pieces, and several works of history. The Oxford W. E. B. Du Bois is a collection of Du Bois's works in 19 volumes. Each work is introduced by a brief essay by an eminent scholar and each volume includes a general introduction from the series editor, Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Spanning over a half-century, this collection is essential for anyone interested in African American history.

              After Reconstruction, African Americans found themselves largely excluded from politics, higher education, and the professions.

              ?Hall's main argument rests on the notion that the greatest problem of the 21st century is living with and understanding differences.? ?Times Higher Education ?In this long-awaited work, Stuart Hall?bracingly confronts the persistence of race?and its confounding liberal surrogate...s, ethnicity and nation?This is a profoundly humane work that?finds room for hope and change.? ?Orlando Patterson ?Marked by struggle and sobriety, this important work makes a significant contribution to a vision of community and an ethics of solidarity.? ?Homi K. Bhabha ?Essential reading for those seeking to understand Hall's tremendous impact on scholars, artists, and filmmakers on both sides of the Atlantic.? ?Artforum ?Given the current political conditions, these lectures on race, ethnicity, and nation?may be even more timely today.? ?Angela Y. Davis, University of California, Santa Cruz In The Fateful Triangle?drawn from lectures delivered at Harvard University in 1994?one of the founding figures of cultural studies reflects on the divisive, often deadly consequences of the politics of identity. Migration was at the heart of Hall's diagnosis of the global predicaments taking shape around him. Explaining more than two decades ago why migrants are the target of new nationalisms, Hall's prescient vision helps us to understand today's crisis of liberal democracy. As he challenges us to find sustainable ways of living with difference, Hall gives us the concept of diaspora as a metaphor, redefining nation, race, and identity in the twenty-first century.
