Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Columbia University historian and political scientist Manning Marable has been one of the preeminent public intellectuals in the social sciences for decades. A tireless and prolific voice for progressive causes, such as the abolition of prisoner disfranchisement laws, Marable has generated a tremendous body of publications on the topics of race, class and social justice in the U.S., writing scores of lively, accessible articles for popular and academic audiences alike. A pioneering intellectual in the field of black studies and the founder of Columbia's Institute for Research in African-American Studies, Marable blends the disciplines of history, political science and sociology to address questions of racial justice, workers rights and other contemporary social issues. This new collection, a rich array of some of Marable's best writing from the last two decades, will prove invaluable to anyone who seeks better understanding of--and creative possible solutions to--the deep and enduring race, class and gender inequity in our society.

Book News Annotation:

This collection of writings by Manning Marable (1950-2011), the notable author, political activist and professor of history and African American Studies at Columbia University, provides readers with a demonstrative survey of the works of one of America's important thinkers on race and politics. The work is divided into six sections covering race and racialization, Black protest in the 1970s and 1980s, Black protest from the 1990s to the present, the American South, Black leadership and building a social justice movement, and individual essays and articles discuss a wide variety of historical events, important public figures and contemporary sociological and political problems in-depth. The works were selected and edited by Russell Rickford, a professor of history at Dartmouth University. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
