Reviews

"The twelve essays in this splendid volume flesh out the rich and diverse roles African Americans and Latinos have played in shaping Arkansas history from slavery to the present. Deftly edited by John A. Kirk, this collection reminds readers that there is much more to the history of race in Arkansas than the often-studied Little Rock school integration crisis of 1957." --Steven F. Lawson, author of "Running for Freedom: Civil Rights and Black Politics in the South since 1941" This important book brings together recent scholarship spanning a commendable period of time and topics. LaGuana K. Gray, Journal of Southern History, August 2016" The twelve essays in this splendid volume flesh out the rich and diverse roles African Americans and Latinos have played in shaping Arkansas history from slavery to the present. Deftly edited by John A. Kirk, this collection reminds readers that there is much more to the history of race in Arkansas than the often-studied Little Rock school integration crisis of 1957. Steven F. Lawson, author of Running for Freedom: Civil Rights and Black Politics in the South since 1941" a substantial addition to African American, Hispanic, immigration, southern, and sun belt studies, particularly that pertaining to Arkansas history. The essays in this collection should be considered in further research and would work well both in upper-division undergraduate courses as well as graduate seminars in their respective fields of specialization. Journal of American History, March 2016" The strength of this work rests in the fact that it provides more exhaustive information on race and ethnic relations, which moves beyond the standard black-white dichotomy explanations. More important, the readings often take you through some pivotal historical points through the eyes of racial and ethnic minorities as they saw it in Arkansas. This edited volume would be a great addition to any student or professional s library who wanted a more in-depth examination of race and ethnic relations in Arkansas, with broad implications of relating its contents to social trends across the American South and the rest of the United States. Arkansas Review, December 2015" Race and Ethnicity in Arkansas is an exceptionally strong contribution to the history of Arkansas and the U.S. South. It is rare to find an edited volume that is so superbly structured and that contains uniformly strong contributions. There is not a weak link among the twelve chapters. Together, this collection not only provides a remarkably comprehensive exploration of race and ethnicity in Arkansas since the 1800s, but also challenges us to think about the place of race within broader struggles over land, labor, state power, culture, and gender relations. It forces us, in short, to think about Arkansas history from new perspectives.

The lucid and persuasive essays not only expand the social portrait of the state but reveal decisively how its history is intertwined with national and global developments. The volume also encourages historians beyond Arkansas to take fresh looks at old assumptions."--Ben Johnson, author of "Arkansas in Modern America: 1930-1999"
