'Moving chronologically over 150 years of Afro-American history, Moses discusses the religio-political positions of diverse historic figures and the messianic themes of several novels. It's obvious that he has read exhaustively and reflected seriously. Fresh insights abound. His assertion, for example, that David Walker's Appeal is more a jeremiad than a protonationalist tract is a convincing rereading. He sardonically demonstrates that the 'Uncle Tom' ideal, correctly understood, has exerted a lasting appeal not only upon integrationists but upon separatists as well....An impressive study of an important myth in Afro-American and American culture.' -Albert J. Raboteau, The Journal of Southern History

'Uncle Tom' is the most piercing epithet blacks can hurl at one another. It marks targets as race traitors, and that painful stain is often permanent. Much more than a slur, Uncle Tom is a vital component of a system of social norms in the black community that deters treachery. In this book, Brando Simeo Starkey provocatively argues that blacks must police racial loyalty and that those successfully prosecuted must be punished with the label Uncle Tom. This book shadows Uncle Tom throughout history to understand how these norms were constructed, disseminated, applied, and enforced. Why were Martin Luther King, Jr, Marcus Garvey, Muhammad Ali, Jackie Robinson, Thurgood Marshall and others accused of racial betrayal? In Defense of Uncle Tom answers this and other questions and insists that Uncle Tom is too valuable to discard. Because it deters treachery, this epithet helps build black solidarity, a golden tool in promoting racial progress.

Excerpt from Travel-Letters From Palestine and the East Every land is holy since God made, and is in and over every land. Still there is a sense in which only one land is holy. And that because its mountains and plains and cities, its fields, flocks and flowers, its peoples and laws and customs, are woven into every part of our Bible; because of those holy ones who lived and wrought there for us; and holy because of the divers times and places and manners in which God has here revealed Himself to His people, and through chosen vessels to all the world. But most of all, holy because of that Holy One who here had His cradle and home, His workshop, pulpit and school room, His Golgotha and Olivet. And because of the future when that strangest of people shall turn unto Christ, and when instead of the ancient city of Jerusalem, now in ruins, the New Jerusalem, which furnished the last and perhaps the most beautiful picture of heaven, shall be let down out of heaven, may Palestine truly be called the Holy Land. To visit this land, walk its ways, commune with its choicest souls in their old homes and in the light of the Land to read the Book, is a privilege to be coveted by any one, and particularly by one whose sole work is to preach the Gospel here revealed. In the good providence of God this privilege came to the writer, and after due provision for home and church, with grateful heart, he left home on March the third for New York. A day here without being maimed or killed, we felt reasonably safe for the rest of the trip. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
