W.E.B. Du Bois (1868-1963) was one of the leading public figures of his time-an African American sociologist, historian, civil rights activist, author, and editor. He organised, protested, laid out programs, petitioned, and raised questions of long-term strategy and short-term tactics. He also wrote numerous books and articles and was a commanding speaker and a prodigious correspondent. Meyer Weinberg created The World of W.E.B. Du Bois to provide a short journey through Du Bois's views on virtually all aspects of twentieth-century life. More than one thousand quotations from his published writings and correspondence are included, arranged into twenty topical chapters. Each quotation begins with a heading designed to summarise its main theme. A subject index provides additional access to the ideas of this complex figure.
