Redwashing: Sedgwick's Blood Moon, a Case Study
AbstractThis essay looks at the recently published book Blood Moon by John Sedgwick. The author and Colin Calloway were asked by the author and publisher to do readers reports on the book prior to publication. This essay discusses that process and the refusal of the author to make changes pointed out by the readers, including factual errors and negative stereotypes, all the while thanking the reviewers profusely in his acknowledgments, suggesting they had vetted and endorse the book.
