Publisher Comments:

“You can’t lead the people if you don’t love the people. You can’t save the people if you don’t serve the people.”

 

The New York Times bestselling author of Race Matters and Democracy Matters offers provocative, open-hearted wisdom for our times. In a world that yearns for unarmed truth and unconditional love, in the midst of cold greed and blind hatred, Hope on a Tightrope offers a new compass. This courageous collection will challenge all those in search of new perspectives and provides deep wells of inspiration that marry the mind to the heart.

 

Whether writing on race and identity, courage and faith, or music and philosophy,

Dr. West reveals himself as a brilliant philosopher who loves us enough to make us think. He challenges us, stimulates us and never, ever stops serving us. As you read the book, allow yourself to contemplate Dr. West's wisdom. Let him become your intellectual and spiritual sparring partner, and stand on his shoulders to gain a new view of the world and your place in it.

Synopsis:

Offering openhearted wisdom for modern times, this collection of quotations, speech excerpts, letters, and photos by the "New York Times"-bestselling author of "Democracy Matters" includes a CD that highlights Dr. West's spoken-word artistry.

I really enjoyed this book. Cornel West is such a genius. This book is basically a whole lot of memorable quotes and words of wisdom. He speaks of democracy, religion, freedom,
Wall Street, the blues, and just about everything else that he is interested in. I very much appreciate his views on religion, even though I am not a religious person myself. I also like that he has enough criticism to go around for everyone. I highly recommend this book. It is very well put together. I did not want to put it down.
