Book Description

6 May 2011 Decolonial Studies, Postcolonial Horizons
Exodus, as a powerful narrative of liberation, has been a central imaginative touchstone in the black American struggle against US racism. This book traces the concept in a number of pivotal black thinkers, and explores its signficance for contemporary America.

The exodus story is a fitting allegory for the painful experience of exile that disproportionately afflicted African Americans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and it also provides compelling imagery for the triumphant election of Barack Obama in 2008. Building around these themes, Anna Hartnell traces the intellectual development of one of the defining narratives of black American thinking on social justice in the United States.

In placing black America at the centre of the study of US culture, Rewriting Exodus suggests new ways of thinking about America's relationship with the Middle East and the wider postcolonial world. Hartnell's groundbreaking contribution marks a vital new chapter in American cultural and political history.

Product Description

Review

Perceptive, provocative and persuasive... This important, smartly written, and insightful study facilitates deeper understanding of why President Barack Obama's election failed to reconcile fundamental fissures in American society so graphically on display in New Orleans during and in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Anna Hartnell's Rewriting Exodus is an intellectual tour de force. It is essential reading for everyone in African American Studies. (Darlene Clark Hine, Board of Trustees Professor of African American Studies & Professor of History, Northwestern University Chair, Department of African American Studies, Northwestern University)
