9780912469065: Amy Ashwood Garvey: Pan-Africanist, Feminist, and Wife No. 1 (New Marcus Garvey Library : No.4)

Tony Martin, the distinguished professor of African American and Caribbean history at Wellesley College is determined to rescue Amy Ashwood Garvey from obscurity, and place her not only in the forefront of the Marcus Garvey pantheon, but also in the feminist and Pan-African movements of the twentieth century. His book, Amy Ashwood Garvey: Pan-Africanist, Feminist, and Mrs. Marcus Garvey No. 1, Or, A Tale of Two Amies is, indeed, a marvel of scholarship. He tells us that he worked on this book for some twenty-seven years, and it shows. The number of references alone is enough to inspire awe. Martin has done everything and has been everywhere, in the quest to present Amy Ashwood Garvey as a real person, bereft of any unnecessary sociological or psychological encrustations. In doing so, Martin also presents facts and insights on the life of Marcus Garvey hitherto unknown....
Professor Martin appears determined to keep the Garveys in front of us for as long as he lives (he has given us eight very good books already). [In "this richly researched and deeply-delved book,"]  Professor Martin has brought to life, and in such fine detail, a charismatic and driven woman who not many would emulate, but most likely would appreciate.
- - John C. Walter, Afro-Americans in New York Life and History

Review:

"... it's really an excellent book. Not only is it tremendously readable-I read it practically in one sitting-but it is so deeply and meticulously researched, and so closely referenced, that I was quite in awe of the work that went into it....."
-
Bridget Brereton


I feel [this] scholarly work will be a major contribution to Black women's history across the Diaspora.

- Rosalyn Terborg-Penn, Professor of History, Morgan State University


One has to unreservedly compliment Dr. Tony Martin for another major contribution to knowledge production of the African Diaspora. It reveals the historian at his best [with] numerous archives consulted, well-documented interviews and wide ranging analyses and a treasure trove of appendices for the future scholar.
- Carole Boyce Davies

a considerable and valuable contribution to African and Caribbean studies  [and to] African feminism [and]  the history of black people in Britain
 [significantly interrogates] Ashwood  as a political actor in her own right....
Extensive original research [in] a well-structured and
fluently-written book
      
- Ama Biney, African and Asian Studies


It is a tribute to Martin's integrity as a scholar that in spite of his clear and unapologetic bias in favour of his hero Marcus Garvey, he has been able to produce such a balanced account of Amy's life.

-Ian Randle, President, Ian Randle Publishers, Jamaica
