About the Author:


The late C. Vann Woodward, former Sterling Professor Emeritus of History at Yale University, wrote and edited several history books, including Mary Chestnut's Civil War, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize in 1982.

Review:


"C. Vann Woodward's Strange Careeer is one of the most important works to an American historian of any period. Not only is Strange Career a great work of history, it is history. It is still enthralling students today."--Carlos Blanton, Rice University


"This classic study of the history of segregation in the United States still has much to teach us."--The Diversity Factor


"A unique, revealing, and 'eye-opening' volume that deals with a most sensitive aspect of U.S. history."--Arthur E. Chapman, University of Miami


Praise for previous editions:


"Excellent perspective of development of Jim Crow laws in South and , what is unusual, in the North. The revision has a good analysis of the irony of modern black separatism."--Ben F. Fordney, James Madison Univ.


"A witty, learned, and unsettling book...a book of permanent significance."--Robert Penn Warren


"A landmark in the history of American race relations."--David Herbert Donald


"I have used this work as a required reading in my freshman-level U.S. history class for twenty-two years and found it a most appropriate assignment."--Peter Sehlinger, Indiana University, Indianapolis


"Absolutely useful."--Jennie La Monte, University of New Hampshirs
