    The first time I tried reading this book I could not get through it the second time I tried, years later, I couldn t put it down Go figure It s long, scholarly, meticulously researched, and if you re interested in Du Bois, I doubt you will find a better biography.

    After the first few sentences of this masterpiece by David Levering Lewis, it is obvious why his account of the second half of the life of Du Bois won the Pulitzer Prize For Biography Lewis possesses a writing style that has smoothness to it Page after page the life of W E B Du Bois and the thoughts of the man seem real enough to be your own provided you can accept the controversy of a figure as great as Du Bois Lewis does his best to be objective in his account of Du Bois, or I should s After the first few sentences of this masterpiece by David Levering Lewis, it is obvious why his account of the second half of the life of Du Bois won the Pulitzer Prize For Biography Lewis possesses a writing style that has smoothness to it Page after page the life of W E B Du Bois and the thoughts of the man seem real enough to be your own provided you can accept the controversy of a figure as great as Du Bois Lewis does his best to be objective in his account of Du Bois, or I should say, as objective ...
