Reviews

“Manning Marable is the Du Bois of the contemporary era—a towering intellectual, an elegantly exquisite writer, and an insightful analyst. This book, which distills the essence of his brilliance, is a landmark in Black Studies and African-American history.”
— Gerald Horne, author, W.E.B. Du Bois: A Biography

“Manning Marable has shown better than anyone that freedom dreams and materialist analysis are companions. These wonderful essays demonstrate the wide range and impressive depth of his expertise and passion. From Africa to the United States, from history to the future, from academic writing to journalistic troublemaking, Marable argues that the possibility of better worlds is not only necessary, but also contained in the struggles we pursue.”
—David Roediger, University of Illinois, author of How Race Survived U.S. History
