    1. The only thing I can hold against this book is the title "Slave Culture", which implies that the slave status itself created a culture which was crucial in the context of the subject of the book. In the text of the book however, it is shown that the links to various African cultures and African cultural heritage which was the crucial factors in African-American nationalist theory and the foundations of black America.So apart from the title, the book is brilliant, thorough and all through very in [...]

    2. There'a an article length version of this book, originally published in The Massachusetts Review, which gives you everything you need.
