Product Description

If there was any one man who articulated his anger, the struggle and the beliefs of African Americans in the 1960s, that man was Malcolm X. His autobiography is now an established classic of modern America, a book that exrpresses like none other the crucial truth about race and racism in our times. This book is the result of a unique collaboration between Alex Haley and Malcolm X, whose voice and philosophy resonate from every page, just as his experience and his intelligence continue to speak to millions on the greatest issue of our day: the ongoing African American struggle for social and economic equality.

Publisher's Description

ONE OF TIME’S TEN MOST IMPORTANT NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

In the searing pages of this classic autobiography, originally published in 1964, Malcolm X, the Muslim leader, firebrand, and anti-integrationist, tells the extraordinary story of his life and the growth of the Black Muslim movement. His fascinating perspective on the lies and limitations of the American Dream, and the inherent racism in a society that denies its nonwhite citizens the opportunity to dream, gives extraordinary insight into the most urgent issues of our own time. The Autobiography of Malcolm X stands as the definitive statement of a movement and a man whose work was never completed but whose message is timeless. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand America.

Praise for The Autobiography of Malcolm X

"Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force of will."—Barack Obama, Dreams from My Father

"Extraordinary . . . a brilliant, painful, important book."The New York Times

"A great book . . . Its dead level honesty, its passion, its exalted purpose, will make it stand as a monument to the most painful truth."The Nation

"The most important book I’ll ever read, it changed the way I thought, it changed the way I acted. It has given me courage I didn’t know I had inside me. I’m one of hundreds of thousands whose lives were changed for the better."—Spike Lee

"This book will have a permanent place in the literature of the Afro-American struggle."—I. F. Stone

    Gripping and paradigm-opening history of a man who was critical to the civil rights effort of the 1960s; more than that, it's the story of a life lived under extraordinary circumstances by a person who continually rose to the occasion through incredible struggle. Malcolm X is a personal hero of mine after reading this book, and inspired further study into the history of race relations and color-based discrimination in the United States. Fascinating read and I recommend to everyone.
