Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0890896402, Paperback)

Among new areas of scholarly inquiry and critical interpretation, African-American Studies holds a unique place in the Academy. Now there is a volume of essays that illuminates the history and developments of this discipline. The African-American Studies Reader, edited by Nathaniel Norment, Jr. of Temple University, contains 61 articles covering a gamut of topics relevant to the discipline, including: The Discipline: Definition and Perspectives; African-American Women's Studies; Historical Perspectives; Philosophical Perspectives; Theoretical Foundation; Political Perspectives; Critical Issues and Perspectives; and Curriculum Development and Program Models.

Essays in this volume address the study of African-American Studies as an intellectual, social and political focus for higher education. They discuss the intellectual and academic roots of the field and review the conditions that made its emergence possible. They examine the discipline's theoretical, ideological, philosophical and research paradigms, and they consider the past, present and future challenges of African-American Studies.

This outstanding collection of essays in African-American Studies will be of interest to individuals new to the field as well as those already involved in research, teaching, and other aspects of African-American Studies.
