Martin Luther King Jr.'s adaptation of Gandhi's doctrine of non-violent resistance is the most visible example of the rich history of ties between African Americans and India. In "The End of Empires", Gerald Horne provides an unprecedented history of the relationship between African Americans and Indians in the period leading up to Indian independence in 1947. Recognizing their common history of exploitation, Horne writes, African Americans and Indians interacted frequently and eventually created alliances, which were advocated by W.E.B. Du Bois, among other leaders. Horne tells the fascinating story of these exchanges, including the South Asian influence on the Nation of Islam and the close friendship between Paul Robeson and India's first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. Based on extensive archival research in India, the United States and the United Kingdom, "The End of Empires" breaks new ground in the effort to put African American history into a global context.

About the Author:

Gerald Horne, Moores Professor of History & African-American Studies at the University of Houston, is the author of many books including Black and Brown: African-Americans and the Mexican Revolution, 1910-1920, The Deepest South: The United States, Brazil, and the African Slave Trade, and Cold War in a Hot Zone: The United States Confronts Labor and Independence Struggles in the British West Indies (Temple).

From Publishers Weekly:

Horne (Cold War in a Hot Zone) shifts the more usual local focus in African-American history to a global one of unanticipated dimensions in this study of the spiritual, ideological and personal ties between Black America and India. The author contends that colonialism and anti-Asian bias made for common cause between African-Americans and Indians, and explores how Indian thought significantly influenced African-American culture—from the expected examination of Martin Luther King Jr.'s adoption of Gandhi's techniques of nonviolent resistance to more surprising revelations on the South Asian influence on abolitionists and the Nation of Islam, and the close friendship between Paul Robeson and Jawaharlal Nehru. In arguing that the momentum toward independence in India and equality for U. S. Negroes... became intertwined, Horne presents a variety of examples of cultural cross-pollination—African-Americans reading Gandhi and writing on colonialism while Indians were writing on the race problem in the United States, and more. Readers interested in African-American history, race relations and anticolonialist movements will find Horne's book overstuffed and somewhat rambling, but still an informative and useful exploration of fresh territory.
