The Souls of Black Folk
The Souls of Black Folk
by W. E. B. Du Bois
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.94

4.0 out of 5 stars COMPULSORY READ FOR ALL SELF IDENTIFIED WHITE LIBERALS, 17 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very interesting read about the difficulties, prejudice and discrimination shown to black americans. Also depressing as so many of the issues raised have not disappeared, either in the US or the UK.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spicy stuff!, 12 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another excellent book by Si and Dave that demonstrates their love of good food and the way it is produced. If you haven't watched the TV shows then do so. They make the book more accessible.

Excellent book taking us through a different process to that usually inspired by historians of WW1. Also good to see mentions of Bismarck - the man who helped peace on mainland Europe for 40+ years.
