Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In 26 pieces published previously between 1982 and 1995 and accompanied by a fresh introductory autobiography, Marable shares his unswerving exploration of a common ground for liberation, peace, and radical democracy. His cutting commentaries on the superstructure of capitalist oppression range from Alabama to Zimbabwe, from Chicago's Harold Washington to Tchula's Eddie Carthan, the first black mayor of a Mississippi Delta town, from the 1983 anniversary March on Washington to the 1995 Million Man March. Seeking to mobilize a progressive, multiracial, internationalist, grass-roots coalition, the Columbia University history professor and director of the Institute for Research in African-American Studies preaches against the hierarchy and violence of division by race, class, gender, ethnicity, and sexual preference. Readers of any of his previous ten books such as How Capitalism Underdeveloped Black America (South End Pr., 1983) will recognize Marable's continuing call for an appropriate democratic strategy to transform society to the mandates of justice. Highly recommended for academic social science and political theory collections.?Thomas Davis, Arizona State Univ., Tempe
