Recensioner i media

"In focusing on this largely forgotten activist and artist of Victorian America and his struggles to bring the United States into closer proximity to its ever-elusive ideals, Elliott undertook a task that was more daunting, for his subject pursued wildly different careers as a politician, a lawyer, and a novelist in pursuit of his goals. The author impressively succeeds in integrating these divergent strands into a coherent and illuminating whole."--Michael Thomas Smith, Reviews in American History<br> "An excellent biography, by far the best scholarly treatment of it important subject."--Mark S. Weiner, American Historical Review<br> "No one has completed a more thorough, penetrating study of Tourgee and his multiple legacies than Mark Elliott."--Jane Dailey, Civil War Book Review<br> "Elliott's masterful biography...defies easy capsulization.... It tells a story of a remarkable and talented man who dedicated much of his life to a noble, yet often lonely, struggle.... And it places Tourgee in the context of the momentous events that shaped his life and ideas...this extraordinary biography ends by leaving it to others to judge the meaning of Tourgee's life in our own times. There is little doubt that it can still tell us a great deal about the human condition."--Raleigh Daily News and Observer<br> "Mark Elliott...has synthesized a wealth of material and crafted a superb study.... Elliot writes with gusto and is provocative in his analysis. Color-Blind Justice is certain to become an invaluable source on Tourgee and on race relations in the United States during the second half of the 19th century."--Richmond Times Dispatch<br> "A seminal but nearly forgotten figure in the AmericanCivil Rights movement receives his due in this richly detailed biography.... Elliott goes a long way toward restoring Albion Tourgee's name to a prominent place on the list of American civil rights heroes."--Publishers Weekly<br> "Through deep research, great sensitivity to the racial and social contexts of the late nineteenth century, and some eloquent writing, Elliott shows us a Tourgee who truly was a pioneer of the tradition of antiracism in its early years. The work is also an excellent on-the-ground biography of a carpetbaggers experience in Reconstruction North Carolina. Tourgee was a major literary, legal, and political figure and this book finally may bring his story to a larger readership. As a first book by a young scholar, it is impressive for its mature writing and creative research."--Avery O. Craven Award citation<br>
