8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Miss NL Murphy on 18 Jan. 2003
Format: Paperback
This collection of works by varied authors has proved to be a gem as a point of reference in my cultural studies course. The work ranges from analysis of male and female relations in the black community, to an excellent essay on black masculinity (its origins and effects) and a piece on the history and relevance of the black womens 'head-tie'. The editor has managed to balance a selection of thought provoking academic material with innovative new writing on contemporary factors such as music and its links to modern attitudes. I would highly recommend this book to anyone pursuing a cultural studies course with a focus on ethnicity/minoriy issues. The book offers theoretical explainations and methodical insight into modern black britain, it works to disperse stereotypes with historically based truth. Its something I will probably return to in my work for years to come.
