Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Long an iconic figure for radicals, Huey Newton is now being discovered by those interested in the history of Americaandrsquo;s social movements. This new release of a classic collection of his writings and speeches traces the development of Newtonandrsquo;s personal and political thinking, as well as the radical changes that took place in the formative years of the Black Panther Party. More than just a historic record, Newtonandrsquo;s prescience and foresight make these documents strikingly pertinent today.

Huey Newton was the founder, leader, and chief theoretician of the Black Panther Party, and one of Americaandrsquo;s most dynamic and important revolutionary philosophers.

Review:

"The former leader and chief theoretician of the Black Panther Party, Huey Newton was (and for some, remains) an iconic figure. This new edition of writings and speeches from between 1967 and 1971 moves Newton out of the haze of memory and brings his ideas (as well as the early history of the Panthers) into sharp focus. Recording the Party's internal struggles, rivalries, and contradictions, selections trace the development of Newton's personal and political thinking during these tumultuous five years. A new introduction by activist and former Panther Elaine Brown puts Newton's writings and political ideas into broader perspective. This book will greatly appeal to both political activists and readers interested in the history of social movements." — Book News
