Ethnic Studies Review
This essay seeks to make a comparative review of two books: 1) Harold A. McDougall's, Black Baltimore: A New Theory of Community; and 2) W. Edward Orser's, Blockbusting in Baltimore: The Edmondson Village Story. The method of procedure used in this review essay will describe and evaluate the organizational structure of the books in a three-fold manner: 1) summary of the texts; 2) use of oral history in the texts; and 3) contribution of books to oral history= literature and conclusion, drawing upon common themes between the two books.
