This book serves nicely as a single-volume introduction to Malcolm X and his mature thought, although it is not without its flaws.

The book is comprised of a variety of items including eight essays on the significance and meaning of Malcolm’s life and thought, seven essays of a more intimate nature by people who had known Malcolm X personally, four transcriptions of panels, dialogues, or interviews in which Malcolm X participated (the visit from two FBI agents, surreptitiously recorded by Malcolm X, is particularly amusing as the agents try in vain to get Malcolm to become an informant), three essays about Malcolm’s exploits abroad, and seven speeches or statements by Malcolm X himself.

Appendices include A Statement of Aims and Objectives of the Organization for Afro-American Unity, an outline for a petition to the United Nations charging the US as committing genocide against its African-American citizens, and a selected bibliography for further reading.

The volume is quite the treasure trove! As with any collection of materials such as those gathered in this text, some items will prove to be superior to others in terms of scholarly rigor. A particularly outstanding essay on Malcolm X during his internationalist phase was written by Ruby M. and E.U. Essien-Udon. I cannot point to any item in the book as being particularly weak. The editor has done an outstanding job in locating and bringing all of these items together, although a number of the essays were written specifically for the purpose of inclusion in this volume.

I have only three small criticisms of the book. First, the included texts are drawn mostly from the period after Malcolm X had turned away from the Nation of Islam. Doing so makes the book somewhat unbalanced, and it fails to give a more complete accounting of the deep and complicated man who was Malcolm X.

Second, the subtitle of the book is “The Man and His Times.” This subtitle promises more than the book actually provides. The reader learns much about Malcolm X, the man, but I could not discern any content seeking to place Malcolm X in an historical or social milieu. Finally, this book requires reading The Autobiography of Malcolm X in order to gain knowledge about Malcolm’s period with the Nation of Islam as well as his earlier years so that a more complete depiction of Malcolm X can be composed.

However, these quibbles are minor and easily can be compensated for with readings from other texts. The Autobiography of Malcolm X is where the student of Malcolm X should begin reading before delving into the secondary literature such as the book now being reviewed. Despite the relatively minor flaws mentioned above, I still give this book five stars for its generally outstanding nature.

This book is a bout a man who was so advanced in his thinking people are just beginning to scrape the surface of how important he is/was.

This book was written by a friend of Malcolm X, and it is worth reading for the insight that only a friend can give. John Henrik Clarke was a gentleman and a scholar.
