"Roots" is believed to be one of the most significant 20th Century work by an American writer. When the book was published for the first time, it remained on top of the New York Times Best Seller List for several weeks. "Roots" was an instant success. Two authors accused Haley of plagiarizing their novels. Harold Courlander, a novelist, said that "Roots" had been plagiarized from his novel "The African" which had been published in 1967. He sued Haley in the court of law. Eventually, both parties agreed to an out of court settlement. Haley later mentioned that some passages in his novel had been copied from Harold's book, but he said that it was unintentional.
