The Cambridge Companion series has produced some outstanding and very helpful anthologies of essays about various writers and thinkers. The collected essays tend to be uneven in their quality, sometimes focusing on very esoteric or obscure aspects of their subjects. I’m happy to report that all 12 of the essays contained in this book are quite good, shedding light on their subject rather than obscuring it.

Those considering purchasing this book should be aware that the 12 essays collected in this volume are very, very scholarly. This comment is not a complaint; I simply want to advise potential purchasers what they will be getting if they choose to buy this book. It assumes that the reader already has some knowledge about Malcolm X’s continuously morphing life. Certainly the Autobiography should be a prerequisite, and a reading of a collection or two of his speeches as well as one of the biographies also should precede any attempt to read this book.

This is a book written by leading Malcolm X scholars for other Malcolm X scholars. All but one of the essays are of a length no less than ten pages. These essays take the reader on a deep dive into Malcolm X’s thought and legacy, and it is a quite interesting journey. Even those readers who are not Malcolm X scholars would benefit from this book. Only a few of the essays use meticulous and stringent academic prose in their chosen focus of study, but the majority of the essays are written in a lucid and assessable style that would benefit those who want to advance their knowledge about Malcolm X, whether a professional scholar or an “amateur” autodidact.

Taken together, the essays collected here assist the reader in learning a good deal about Malcolm X. The book is so provocative that it makes me want to return to the primary sources so that I may read them again with the insights gained from this text. One of the more interesting essays examines how Malcolm’s thought aligns with conservative ideology!

Rather than attempting to review each of the essays in this volume, I shall simply formulate groupings of essays. The first group is related to the period when Malcolm X was a minister with the Nation of Islam. I’m delighted to see essays from a feminist perspective in the second group. The third group describes Malcolm X’s ongoing influence on culture, with an emphasis on black culture but also inclusive of white culture. The final group pays attention to Malcolm X’s use of rhetoric in his speeches.

Of course a few essays don’t quite fit into the classifications described above, but even these essays are captivating and thought-provoking. Being a former scholar, I found the entire book compelling and affective. The statement above about this book being one written for a scholarly audience was made in order to provide the reader with sufficient information to decide whether to purchase the book, and what to expect when reading it. I highly recommend it for anyone wishing to gain a deeper understanding of the enigmatic Malcolm X.
