"Fever Within illuminates our understanding of Ronald Lockett's art and the many ways it engages us as viewers. This book will stand as a significant contribution to discussions of contemporary African American vernacular art, and it creates the foundation for future studies of Lockett and his work."--Charles Russell, Rutgers University
"Ronald Lockett harnesses the world with a deft, visionary grasp and under his elegiac eye offers up an unmatched vision of postindustrial splendor. Bernard L. Herman has sagaciously piloted us into Lockett's museum of lost and found and, as a result, expands our view so as to encompass these articulations from the least privileged yet culturally fertile places."--Richard J. Powell, Duke University
