A SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY
ROBERT A. RUSS
The following revised and expanded bibliography does not attempt to be complete. Comprehensive bibliographies are available elsewhere, the most detailed and complete of which is Margaret Perry The Harlem Renaissance: An Annotated Bibliography and Commentary ( 1982). This work has been one of my major sources, and any student of the period will find it invaluable.
The present bibliography does attempt to provide a manageable and useful first source for those interested in the Harlem Renaissance in general, and in the particular authors and issues addressed in this volume. In selecting the entries, I have attempted to identify major book-length works and significant articles, to update Perry's listings with pertinent materials, to offer listings that fall outside the scope of her study, and to point out even relatively minor works that offer close connections to particular issues examined in this volume.
Since the publication of the first edition of The Harlem Renaissance Reexamined in 1987, there has been a swelling tide of new scholarship and criticism about the Harlem Renaissance, making an updated bibliography all the more necessary.
