Reviews - What do customers think about The Routledge Atlas of African American History (Routledge Atlases of American History)?
AA History in a Book Jan 4, 2007
The book is a comprehensive atlas of African American history. It is useful for quick facts, but for in-depth information it is not as helpful
Terrific Book Jun 5, 2001
I truly enjoyed this book. An extremely accessible take on African American History, this book is a must read for the non-historian as well as the history buff; for the African American, but also for those of all decents. Kudos to Dr. Earle!
