Product description


I can say, without a trace of hyperbole, that this book changed my life.Robin D. G. Kelley, from the ForewordBlack Marxism provides a well-documented foundation upon which to build ideological and mass social movements.PhylonA towering achievement. There is simply nothing like it in the history of black radical thought.Cornel West, Monthly ReviewReflective and thought-provoking, a welcome contribution to the African/Afro-American studies discipline.Canadian Review of Studies in Nationalism

From the Inside Flap

In this reissue of a 1983 classic, Robinson argues that Western Marxism is unable to comprehend either the racial character of capitalism or mass movements outside of Europe. Robinson combines political theory, history, philosophy, and cultural analysis to illustrate his argument and chronicles the influence of Marxist ideology and black resistance on such important black radical thinkers as W. E. B. Du Bois, C. L. R. James, and Richard Wright.
