Most of the book is factual and informative and explains Garvey's accomplishments and downfalls. My only criticism is the author E David Cronon is very bias against Garvey. The author does not seem to be able to give an objective assessment of Marcus Garvey.

This Marcus Garvey biography is very short and readable book. This book gives a basic understanding of Marcus Garvey and his Universal Negro Improvement Association. Most of the book is factual and informative and explains Garvey's accomplishments and downfalls. My only criticism is the author E David Cronon is very bias against Garvey. The author does not seem to be able to give an objective assessment of Marcus Garvey. Cronon does not take into account the hostility of the white power structure against Garvey's movement. I would not recommend this book for any Garvey supporter.

This gave an incredible amount of background about a man who is largely ignored in American history. It's sad really, because his grand plans although never realized are exactly what is needed in the black community. Fragments of his teachings have been used/borrowed in later movements, but there hasn't been anyone that had such an impact as he had. It's incredibly impressive when you consider the time period.

wow. Good book? Yes. Good for Kindle reading? nope. Absolutely the worst kindle book I have ever tried to read. Did anyone actually look at this before putting the kindle version out there for people to buy? Wh0ts. zdkp3j ra' ......."insert random words and photos" stuff about Marcus Garvey. I urge EVERYONE not to ever buy a kindle book from amazon if this one is anything like what any other kindle books are on amazon.

One only because you can't do zero. An absolute mess of a digital file--completely unreadable. I want my money back.

Excellent history that no classroom will provide.
The author did a good job in detailing the current events at the time Marcus Garvey entered Harlem and the strengths and weaknesses that he had during his mission.
I also noted that the author repeatedly described Marcus Garvey as “pudgy” and I thought this was unusual.
On page 216 the author wrote” After the dread Mau Mau terrorists began their murderous depredations in Kenya in 1951, Negroes in the United States and elsewhere were quick to tie the developments in Kenya to Garvey’s African nationalist movement.” In this passage the author displays his biases and also a flair for making unsubstantiated generalizations that cover a people with one broad stroke. The author did not obtain first hand interviews for his book.
In the author’s final analysis he concludes that Garveyism was a failure because there were no tangible outcomes from the movement, there was no “escape.” Marcus Garvey was one of the major contributors to the Pan-African paradigm that exists among African people across the globe. When dealing with any change the first building block is the idea or plan. Since Marcus Garvey, African people across the globe have increased travel to Africa, there are study groups that go there and many Africans born in America have re-located to Africa, Ghana in particular. African people support materially the causes in Africa and the causes of African people throughout the globe. There are multiple news and information venues regarding what is occurring on the Mother continent and African people agree that the issues of reparations is relevant to all people of African descent.
The author’s conclusion demonstrates his lack of insight and he diminishes himself more than he ever could Marcus Garvey and the Pan-African movement.
Marcus Garvey always stated that his main goal was to plant a seed in the minds of his people and that he most certainly succeeded in doing.
