"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Cooper's scholarly portrait of McKay traces his life from his birth in Jamaica in 1890 to his death in Chicago in 1948. McKay's education in the United States; his years abroad in England, France, and North Africa; his early Communist sympathies; and his later conversion to Catholicism are all explored in meticulous detail. Cooper is particularly good at examining McKay's relationship with the writers and intellectuals of the Harlem Renaissance and in evaluating his influence on the Negritude movement, which included such writers as Aime Cesaire and Leopold Sedar Senghor. Recommended for academic and larger public libraries, especially those with strong collections in Afro-American studies. William Gargan, Brooklyn Coll. Lib., CUNY
