Douglas R. Egerton is Professor of Political and Social History at Le Moyne College.
"By taking the thinking of enslaved and free blacks no less
seriously than that of those who had come to constitute a ruling
race, Douglas Egerton has gone far toward redrawing the boundaries
of what traditionally has been segregated in intellectual, social,
or military history. In the process, Egerton reveals much, not only
about the making of the United States, but of the historian's
craft. Students and specialists alike will find much of value in
this historiographical gem."
-Norrece T. Jones, Jr., Virginia Commonwealth University
"Egerton's collection displays his prowess as a social and political historian.."
