185 and his impatience meant that he was almost always an outsider, a man with few personal friends, who tended to repel rather than attract. Dr. Oldfield's book combines careful and mature scholarship with a lively, readable style. It will be of enormous value to students of African Christianity as well as to scholars working in the field of nineteenth-century Afro-American history. The book does, how- ever, have one glaring weakness: its treatment of Crummell's thought is rather too superficial. Whilst the author describes fairly fully the influences that shaped Crummell's intellectual outlook- the Classics, the romantic movement and particularly evangelical protestantism-he never really discusses the effects of this intellectual-cum-religious framework on the way Crummell perceived and articulated those issues about which he wrote and spoke so passionately-issues like slavery, race, the church and black nationalism. An additional chapter analysing the content of Crummell's impressive literary output would, I think, give a much greater sense of completeness to this work.
