Pressestimmen"Sundiata has written an important history. It is an honest and frank discussion about the role of race, ethnicity and class in the Pan-African narrative. Its comprehensiveness, its attention to detail and its clarity of thought make this work a substantial contribution to African, African American and Atlantic history."--History, Volume 90, Issue 4, Number 300, October 2005 "[E]rudite..."--Randal Maurice Jelks, Books and Culture "Brothers and Strangers is a provocative and highly nuanced book that deals with the response of people in the West, especially those in the African-American community, to the accusations of governmental malfeasance and labor abuse leveled against Liberia in the 1920s and 1930s."--John C. Yoder, International Journal of African Historical Studies "Writing with the command of a scholar deeply versed in the topics at hand, Sundiata provides a rich and thoughtful assessment of Liberia, black America, and the relationship between these transatlantic communities during a quarter century of contestations over charges of slavery, struggles over black rule, and the nature of transatlantic black linkages.What makes Sundiata's book such worthwhile reading is that he tackles the topics with incisive interpretation and analysis. The book is thus a powerful commentary on the state of relations among Africans and the diaspora."--James H. Meriwether, African Affairs "[A] valuable addition to the literature..."--Yaacov Shavit, American Historical Review "Brothers and Strangers thoughtfully engages the usefulness of diaspora as a theoretical template for deciphering the histories and interests of African peoples long separated by oceans and time."--Claude A. Clegg III, Journal of American History "Brothers and Strangers is an illuminating, politically charged... history of ethnic and class conflict in Liberia."--Minkah Makalani, Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History "Sundiata has written an important history. It is an honest and frank discussion about the role of race, ethnicity and class in the Pan-African narrative. Its comprehensiveness, its attention to detail and its clarity of thought make this work a substantial contribution to African, African American and Atlantic history."--Lester P. Lee, Jr., History
