Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Henry Louis Gates, Jr.’s Tradition and the Black Atlantic is both a vibrant romp down the rabbit hole of cultural studies and an examination of the discipline’s roots and role in contemporary thought. In this conversational tour through the halls of theory, Gates leaps from Richard Wright to Spike Lee, from Pat Buchanan to Frantz Fanon, and ultimately to the source of anticolonialist thought: the unlikely figure of Edmund Burke.

Throughout Tradition and the Black Atlantic, Gates shows that the culture wars have presented us with a surfeit of either/ors—tradition versus modernity; Eurocentrism versus Afrocentricism. Pointing us away from these facile dichotomies, Gates deftly combines rigorous scholarship with humor, looking back to the roots of cultural studies in order to map out its future course.

Book Description: Basic Books. 1 Cloth(s), 2010. hard. Book Condition: New. In this conversational tour through the halls of theory, Henry Louis Gates leaps from Richard Wright to Spike Lee, from Pat Buchanan to Frantz Fanon, and ultimately to the source of anticolonialist thought, the unlikely figure of Edmund Burke. Gates's book is both a lively romp down the rabbit hole of cultural scholarship and an examination of the roots and role of such studies in contemporary thought, observing how the culture wars on American campuses have presented us with a surfeit of such either/ors as tradition versus modernity, and Eurocentrism versus Afrocentrism. Gates points us away from these facile dichotomies with rigor and humor, reframing the purpose of cultural studies and mapping out a future course."The culture wars are likely most remembered as the conflicts between liberals and conservatives that started on American campuses and spilled out into the broader American society—arguments over whether or not the educational canon should focus so much on dead white men to debates about making cultural and social space for minority rights and gay marriage. Scholar Gates expands on notions of the 'culture wars' to examine how clashes between Afrocentrism and Eurocentrism have played out in the U.S. and Britain from the Harlem Renaissance through the British black arts movement of the 1980s. Along the way, he explores the work of writer Richard Wright, social theorist Stuart Hall, anti-colonialist Edmund Burke, poet Amiri Baraka, filmmaker Spike Lee, and others. He explores the culture wars at play within the beloved black nationalist icon Franz Fanon, as well as the contrasts between the black arts movement in the U.S. and Britain and the debate about the relationship between art and the common people. Gates is also personal and playful in exploring 'diaspora aesthetics'."—Booklist 224. Bookseller Inventory # 32999
