"A credit to American scholarship. . . . It is the sort of book of which we have too few, and of which it is impossible that one should have too many."—from the Yale Review, May 1900
"What made Du Bois's study remarkable in its day was its rejection of prevailing assumptions of inherent racial differences, thus bearing on issues much wider than those indicated by its title. It is also notable as a thoroughly modern piece of social research. The problems faced by Philadelphia's blacks, he argued, had nothing to do with their supposed racial proclivities, but derived from the way they had been treated in the past and their relegation in the present to the most menial and lowest-paying jobs."—Times Literary Supplement
