Product Description

In his first book, now a classic manifesto, Cornel West revitalizes a black theology of liberation by adopting the social analysis of progressive Marxist thought. Through retelling the story of the western philosophical tradition as well as providing a critical overview of black thought, West provides a theorietical framework for interpreting the African American experience. His goal for integrating the tradition of prophetic Christian thought with Marxist Social Criticism is the transformation of the structures of the world through a political action.

Publisher's Description

In this, his premiere work, Cornel West provides readers with a new understanding of the African American experience based largely on his own political and cultural perspectives borne out of his own life's experiences. He challenges African Americans to consider the incorporation of Marxism into their theological perspectives, thereby adopting the mindset that it is class more so than race that renders one powerless in America. Armed with a new introduction by the author, this Twentieth Anniversary Edition of Prophesy Deliverance! is a must have.
