Walter Rodney is revered throughout the Caribbean as a teacher a hero and a martyr This book remains the foremost work on the region, This title features a dialogue held in Amherst MA where Rodney discussed his own political and intellectual development and exchanged views on the role of the black intellectual, Dancing in Chains is far more than a sensitive biography though it is surely that it is also a model of psychologically informed social and cultural history Olsen recognizes that psychic conflicts often play themselves out on a higher plane that psychic and intellectual history are intertwined He presents a wonderful nuanced picture of Howells br Jackson Lears Rutgers University br br In this insightful study of the childhood and youth of William Dean Howells Dancing in Chains demonstrates how the turbulent social and cultural changes of the early nineteenth century shaped the young Howells s emotional and intellectual life His early diaries letters poetry fiction and newspaper columns are used to illustrate Olsen s argument which also in turn throws light on the dominant tensions in antebellum America br br Accepting the emergent middle class ethos of civilized morality with its new conceptions of child rearing and gender spheres Howells s parents urged him to achieve self control and individual success while also teaching him to seek the good of others rather than his own glory For Howells the conflicts coalesced at the time of his leaving home an increasing common rite of passage for antebellum youth Trying to affirm his sense of literary vocation he tested his aspirations against the family s Swedenborgian religious convictions and the antislavery commitments of his village while experimenting with competing literary ideologies in the process of meeting the demands of the new mass reading audience For Howells the resulting tensions eased toward the end of his youth but reappeared in his more mature works of fiction and social criticism in later years br br Portraying the ordeal of coming of age during a momentous period of American history Dancing in Chains is a fascinating study with a broad appeal to general readers as well as scholars, Completed shortly before Walter Rodney s assassination in June i A History of the Guyanese Working People i provides an original well informed and perceptive contribution to the historiography of nineteenth century Guyanese society This comprehensive examination encompasses the history of African and Asian immigration into Guyana the interaction of ethnic groups the impact of British colonialism economic and political constraints on the working class and the social life of the masses br br Rodney argues that the social evolution of the Guyanese working people has been guided by specific material constraints and extremely powerful external focuses from Europe Africa Asia and North America He emphasizes the destructive fragmentation of the working class along ethnic political and social lines encouraged by the legacy of slavery postslavery immigration legal distinctions between various classes of labor and the economic bases of the society in contrast to the well defined middle and upper classes the working people appeared divided disorganized and leaderless Rodney s account ends in when the hardships and frustrations of the masses exploded into violence br br i A History of the Guyanese Working People i will stand alone as a landmark study of the profound social upheaval that characterized Guyanese society in the years following emancipation Anyone interested in the problems of underdeveloped nations labor control and the after effects of colonialism and imperialism will appreciate the significance of this work
