Describes how the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church reacted to American foreign policy in the years from the partition of Africa in 1884 to the US invasion of Haiti in 1916. Analyzes church rhetoric and actions in response to imperialism and oppression, and shows how the Church pursued the global application of liberty and identified with oppressed peoples around the world, regardless of race. Describes a range of issues that engaged the Church, such as the Irish struggle for home rule and persecution of Russian Jews, and examines attitudes of ordinary elders and laypersons. Little is assistant professor of African American history at Villanova University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
