Tradition and the Black Atlantic
Renowned scholar Gates (W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research, Harvard U. ) revises and expands lectures in which he examines the Black Arts Movement of the 1980s in Britain and the American culture wars in the 1990s. Here, he attempts to understand these cultural movements, their key themes and trends, and the effects on culture in Britain and the US. He begins with Edmund Burke's views of colonialism in the eighteenth century; critiques the concept of cultural studies and discusses its uses in the US and Britain by black cultural critics; addresses the work of theorist Frantz Fanon in the areas of culture, race, and nation in the Black Arts Movement; and considers the state of the American culture wars.
