Über diesen Titel:
"Theresa Runstedtler traces Jack Johnson's fabulous, furious, iconic life across five continents and through four paradigms (race, masculinity, imperialism, and popular culture), setting a formidably high bar in the emerging genre of transnational biography. Jack Johnson: Rebel Sojourner is a groundbreaking achievement."--David Levering Lewis, Pulitzer-prize winning author of W. E. B. Du Bois, 1868-1919: Biography of a Race
"This is a brilliantly researched and original study of the transnational career of the black American boxer Jack Johnson. In lucid and engaging prose, Theresa Runstedtler traces Johnson's travels across multiple continents, showing how Johnson's life serves as a cultural compass for the intersecting worlds of American, British, and French empire and ideas of race at the turn of the last century. This marvelous contribution to the burgeoning literature on the popular culture of imperialism and transnationalism will find a wide and appreciative audience among scholars of empire, American history, and African American studies."--Kevin Gaines, author of American Africans in Ghana: Black Expatriates in the Civil Rights Era.
