This book traces the concept in a number of pivotal black thinkers, and explores its signficance for contemporary America.The exodus story is a fitting allegory for the painful experience of exile that disproportionately afflicted African Americans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and it also provides compelling imagery for the triumphant election of Barack Obama in 2008.

Building around these themes, Anna Hartnell traces the intellectual development of one of the defining narratives of black American thinking on social justice in the United States.In placing black America at the centre of the study of US culture, Rewriting Exodus suggests new ways of thinking about Americas relationship with the Middle East and the wider postcolonial world.

Hartnells groundbreaking contribution marks a vital new chapter in American cultural and political history.
