ABOUT THIS BOOK
ABOUT THIS BOOK
"'It is a peculiar sensation, this double consciousness, this sense of always looking at one's self
through the eyes of others.' For Adell, W. E. B. Du Bois's famous articulation of the 'twoness' of
black Americans is the key to understanding the 'double bind' which afflicts contemporary
African-American literary theory. . . . [The book] demands and deserves recognition as a cogent
intervention." -- Yearbook of English Studies
