W.E.B Du Bois is widely considered one of the most accomplished and controversial African American intellectuals in U.S. history. A pioneering historian, sociologist, political economist, and civil rights activist, his masterpiece The Souls of Black Folk remains one of the most widely read books in the history of American literature.

In this new book, Reiland Rabaka critically explores Du Bois's multidimensional legacy, lucidly introducing his main contributions in areas ranging from American sociology and critical race studies to black feminism and black Marxism. Rabaka argues that Du Bois's corpus, particularly when attention is given to his contributions to the critique of racism, sexism, capitalism and colonialism, can be persuasively interpreted as both an undeniable and unprecedented contribution to the origins and evolution of one of our most important contemporary critical concepts: intersectionality.

Du Bois: A Critical Introduction is an indispensable resource for scholars and students of history, sociology, politics, and economics. It will also be very valuable for those working in interdisciplinary fields, ranging from African American studies, critical race studies, and critical white studies to black feminism, black Marxism, and black internationalism.

"In this his latest book, Professor Rabaka--an excellent analyst-- makes yet another outstanding contribution to scholarship, by focusing intensively on the protean Du Bois."
Gerald Horne, University of Houston [and author of Race Woman: The Lives of Shirley Graham Du Bois]

"In this original, thought-provoking, and thoroughly researched book, Reiland Rabaka offers an incisive analysis of W.E.B. Du Bois's rich political ideas-- charting his evolution of thought, contributions to several fields of study, and enduring legacies."
Keisha N. Blain, University of Pittsburgh and author of Set the World on Fire: Black Nationalist Women and the Global Struggle for Freedom
