You cannot be a radical or a revolutionary in the US and NOT read this book. It IS a must. For one, too often the African experience is overlooked, and two, stodgy intellectuals see Huey as that stuff of legend and perhaps think they cannot stomach the rhetoric. His penetrating excavations remind me of things I've read by Angela Davis, only Newton clearly is trying desperately to reach his audience. Hes states a thesis, then seeming unsure of himself breaks it down and down into smaller pieces.
Finally, I was encouraged to see a clip of him on a Bay Area show a year before he died. He was lucid and just as revolutionary into his 40's where some of his peers have sold out.
Despite this, the Huey P. Newton reader, along with his autobiography "Revolutionary Suicide" which Penguin finally reprinted a few years ago which was long overdue, are must reads for any activist, anarchist, anarcho-socialist, liberatarian, in order to add to their socio-political tool belt.
