Besides snagging a Pulitzer, Haley's novel started a genealogy movement among African Americans--and just about everyone else--that's still going strong. This 30th-anniversary edition includes a new intro by scholar Michael Eric Dyson and an eight-page transcript of a discussion by author Haley with the editors of Reader's Digest , for which he worked for 40 years. Look for a commemorative edition of the popular TV miniseries on DVD.[Page 132]. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
