Black Literature Criticism: Classic and Emerging Authors since 1950 builds on the tradition established by the RUSA Award-Winning Black Literature Criticism, 1st Edition, published in 1992, and its Supplement, published in 1998.
The new set is designed to stand alone or, for libraries that own the previous releases of Black Literature Criticism, to complement them with a wealth of new materials. Black Literature Criticism: Classic and Emerging Authors since 1950 introduces students and other researchers to Black Literature's leading figures. Approximately one third of the set updates classic black authors originally covered in Black Literature Criticism , 1st Edition; the other two thirds of the set treat new and emerging authors not covered before. Overlap between this set and the original Black Literature Criticism is minimal, and all critical essays are new. Readers will find a wealth of background information as well as robust full-text criticism for each author, including biographical sketches, critical reception of works, explanatory notes and further readings. With approximately 75 entries, averaging 12,000 words in length, this set is designed to meet the needs of university students, upper high school students, general readers, and teachers.

"Libraries that have subscribed to the earlier GLC [Gale Literary Criticism] volumes will certainly want to add this new set, but smaller academic libraries on limited budgets will also do well to find room for these volumes. This set is recommended for all academic libraries."
