About the Authors
"Smith's introduction is exhaustively researched and productively so. Smith places The Flaming Sword in the context of Dixon's lifelong battle with African American intellectuals, and offers scrupulous documentation both of that battle and of how The Flaming Sword intervenes in it."—Scott Romine, UNC-Greensboro
"The eminent historian John David Smith, author and editor of so many books treating race, white supremacy, and African American history and biography, is the ideal person to introduce Dixon's last novel for twenty-first century readers."—Steven Weisenberger, Southern Methodist University
