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.
Manning Marable is the M. Moran Weston and Black Alumni Council Professor of African American Studies at Columbia University, where he is also professor of history and public affairs. Among his many important books is Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention (Viking 2011). Dr. Marable is a frequent commentator for such media as CNN, the History Channel, PBS, NBC's Today Show, Tavis Smiley, BET, the Charlie Rose Show, BBC, and Al Jazeera. Russell Rickford has selected the essays for this volume and provides an engaging introduction to Marable's writings. Assistant Professor of History at Dartmouth, he is the author of a biography of Dr. Betty Shabazz, Malcolm X's wife, and a forthcoming book on African-American liberation schools during the black power era.
