Summary
  • This book traces a provocative line from Emerson's work on race, reform, and identity to work by three influential African-American thinkers - W.E.B. Du Bois, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Cornel West - each of whom offers subtle engagement with both the tradition of written protest and the critique of liberalism Emerson shaped
  • Emerson has been cast in recent debate as either an antinomian or an ideologue - as either subversive of institutional controls or indebted to capitalism. Here, Anita Haya Patterson contributes a more nuanced view, probing Emerson's record and its cultural and historical matrix to document a fundamental rhetoric of contradiction - a strategic aligning of opposed political concepts - that enabled him to both affirm and critique elements of the liberal democratic model. A work of striking originality and breadth, From Emerson to King: Democracy, Race, and the Politics of Protest will make invigorating reading for scholars and students of American Studies, American political philosophy, and African-American Studies
