Reviews

"...a formidable work of scholarship. As a philosophical scholar, Johnson has produced a readerly text that captures the reader's attention from beginning to end." -- Floyd W. Hayes, III, The APA Newsletter on Philosophy and the Black Experience
"Nowhere in the literature on West -- and certainly not in West's writings themselves -- is there nearly such a good statement of West's views or one that organizes them into such a readily comprehensible structure. So, for someone who is looking for a good clear understanding of what really drives West's apparently unconnected views on so many matters, this volume cannot be beaten." -- Amazon.com
". . .the best available introduction to West's thought." -- Amazon.com
"...a welcome and intelligent assessment of West's philosophy and ethics and their engagement with issues of social justice and race." -- Seminary Co-op Bookstore Review
