Hyperbolic (as the title indicates) and a bit repetitive—party bosses recruited Willkie to combat isolationists in their own party. They didn’t quite succeed, but Lewis argues that Willkie’s prominence at least allowed for a bit of bipartisanship against Nazis before Pearl Harbor.

Gathering a representative sampling of the New Negro Movement's most important figures, and providing substantial introductory essays, headnotes, and brief biographical notes, Lewis' volume—organized chronologically—includes the poetry and prose of Sterling Brown, Countee Cullen, W. E. B. Du Bois, Zora Neale Hurston, James Weldon Johnson, and others.

Mr. Lewis has produced a readable book on the effect of the Spanish Islamic community on the more northerly European Countries.

The book is useful, and gives a fuller picture of the tensions and advances in the western Mediterranean until the mid-1200's.

If you're truly interested in this period of Islam and Europe, this book is fine. The audiobook edition suffers from an absence of maps to visualize the areas being discussed, and many of the names of Muslim leaders and long gone historical areas were unfamiliar to me, and therefore sections of this book were difficult to retain. It reads like a history textbook, and in audiobook form, a lack of supplemental information and visual aids makes it more difficult than a text version.
