Laura Doyle's book is a timely, readable, and exceedingly provocative analysis of the relation between matriarchal theories and racial politics. Her study of modernist and Harlem Renaissance fictions and the configurations of the racialized mother figure is astute, innovative new work. I admire this book for its scope and finely crafted arguments about the intersections of race and aesthetics. -Dale M. Bauer, University of Wisconsin.

The figure of the mother in literature and the arts has been the subject of much recent critical attention. Whereas many studies have focused on women writers and the maternal, Laura Doyle significantly broadens the field by tracing the racial logic internal to Western representations of maternality at least since Romanticism.
