Review

(

"Winston James' sensitive, probing, and absorbing portrait of John Brown Russwurm restores this pivotal but little-known activist to the prominent status he deserves. Editor, educator, abolitionist, colonizationist, Pan-African polemicist--Russwurm assumed all of these roles in a life that stretched from the Caribbean to Canada and America to Africa. James' insightful book shows how he moved from place to place, and cause to cause, with seeming ease. The Struggles of John Brown Russwurm will delight and please both scholars and students of the Black Atlantic for some time to come."
)-(Richard S. Newman), (author of "Freedom's Prophet: Bishop Richard Allen, the AME Church, and the Black Founding Fathers"/)

(

"This is the most authoritative scholarly introduction so far to the life of John Russwurm, that enigmatic founder of black nationalism, and the most accessible sampling of his works. Professor James has performed a service to the profession."
)-(Wilson J. Moses), (author of "The Golden Age of Black Nationalism, 1850-1925")

"In this clearly written and widely researched biography Winston James has brought back from unwarranted historical obscurity the life and work of the Pan-Africanist, John Brown Russwurm, a pioneer in the struggle for freedom and equality in the US and Africa in the first half of the nineteenth century."
)-(Richard Blackett), (author of "Building an Antislavery Wall: Black Americans in the Atlantic Abolitionist Movement, 1830-1860".)

"The discerning light that James focuses on Russwurm is a significant contribution to the literature of the antislavery movement." -H. Shapiro, "Choice Magazine"

"Over the last 20 years, the majority of U.S. women have entered prenatal care early, yet our infant mortality and preterm rates have been lagging further and further behind other developed nations. It's past time to admit that something's very wrong with this picture and it's our children and families who are suffering. Tom Strong has the courage to question whether the problem might be with the prenatal care system itself and challenges the medical establishment and all of us to face and address this profound perinatal crisis in the America."-Dr. Greg R. Alexander, Professor and Chair, Department of Maternal and Child Health, School of Public Health, University of Alabama at Birmingham

"It is nothing short of courageous for a perinatologist to reveal that the supposed benefits of prenatal care as it's currently being delivered are unsubstantiated in medical research. Anyone who reads this book will discover the simple truth that it is women themselves, rather than their physicians or midwives, who have the power to influence their baby's well-being. Dr. Strong makes it abundantly clear there is cause to redesign the prenatal care delivery system in this country."-Lylaine Gavette, Director of Bethany Women's Healthcare and Birth Center and member of the Board of Directors of the National Association of Childbearing Centers

"What makes this book important is its comprehensiveness, its general readability, and the fact that it has been written by a practicing obstetrician rather than a health services researcher or an academic obstetrician"-"The New England Journal of Medicine",

"An incisive book, it should be on every obstetrician's reading list."-"Mothering",

"Offers a careful regimen for change and ready-to-use advice for pregnant women and their doctors."-"Publishers Weekly",

Review

"This book seems destined to become a eulogy for the important contributions that Martin Levine made to the sociological study of sexuality, gender, and AIDS." -"Men and Masculinities",
