The Oxford W. E. B. Du Bois Reader
Edited by Eric J. Sundquist
The most extensive collection of the works of W.E.B. Du Bois, this volume includes reprints of The Souls of Black Folk and Darkwater in their entirety, as well as a diverse range of Du Bois's writing on issues such as education, literature, and art, and the relationship between black Americans and Africa. Sundquist, an eminent scholar in the field, provides secondary selections which illuminate the themes that most frequently emerge in teaching The Souls of Black Folk, and includes an introduction placing Du Bois in current intellectual debates, headnotes to every selection, and a bibliography with a guide to further reading.
