Abstract

their aversions to a biracial republic of black and white citizens, thereby constructing the ideological infrastructure for the doctrine of separate but equal. Tomek and Hetrick have assembled a thought-provoking set of essays that brim with insights on the multilayered essence of the African coloni- zation movement. As is often the case with edited volumes, the essays are less in conversation with one another than they are discrete entities. And while the title of the volume invokes novel directions, these pieces refine an already existing set of questions and themes on African colonization more than they break new ground. These caveats aside, this volume should serve as a valuable launching pad for further studies investigating the broad- scale significance of African colonization to the history of the nineteenth- century Atlantic world. Paul J. Polgar paul j. polgar, assistant professor in the Arch Dalrymple III Department of History at the University of Mississippi, is the author of the forthcoming book Standard Bearers of Equality: America’s First Abolitionists. Women in the World of Frederick Douglass. By Leigh Fought. (New York: Oxford University Press, 2017. Pp. 401. Cloth, $29.95.)
