The Assimilationist Impulse in Four African American Narratives: Frederick Douglass, James Weldon Johnson, Richard Wright, and LeRoi Jones. With a Foreword by Robert B. Stepto

Lewiston NY: The Edwin Mellen Press, 2011. Paperback. vi, 234p., softbound first edition in 9x6 inch wraps decorated in colors by Richard-Olivier Marius. Cover slightly marred by a food droplet (it didn't erase but we tried), general light dust-soil and a pencil stroke to spine panel, a good copy without further damage to interior, which author Thompson has inscribed affectionately on half-title, signing "Gordon"

Both Thompson and Stepto are Yalies and African American. At writing, Stepto had remained at Yale as professor, Thompson was teaching at CUNY. NOTE, ISBN 9780773415553 is noted on the copyright page as "Hardcover" This is not. To further complicate the matter, on-line databases incorrectly associate this number with the image of the book "Assimilation in American Life" by Gordon M. Milton. Suffice to say care should be taken when purchasing this title.
