Many of the classic works of African American social thought have fallen from print. The African American Intellectual Heritage series seeks to bring back into print such essential books. Each book has a new introduction by an expert contemporary scholar and an up-to-date bibliography on the intellectual in question. The series also publishes new books on the history of African American intellectual life and on ideas about race.
