BEYOND UNITY: Du Bois and Race Politics in the Twenty-First Century

  • Cristina Beltrán (a1)


Lawrie Balfour and Robert Gooding-Williams have given us powerful new works of scholarship on the political thought of W. E. B. Du Bois. Not only do these publications enrich the field of Du Bois scholarship, they exemplify the exciting possibilities at the intersection of political theory and race politics.
