$17.00A Marked Man: The Assassination of Malcolm X
February 21, 1965. Controversial civil rights leader Malcolm X is gunned down during a speech in Manhattan. Few were shocked by the news of Malcolm X's death. Since 1952 the former member of the Nation of Islam had supported the Nation's philosophy of violence as the method to achieve justice for blacks in the United States. But in March 1964, after a major shift in his philosophy, Malcolm changed his message. He no longer agreed with the Nation of Islam and feuded with its leaders. He knew that someone would try to kill him. Nearly one year later, that time finally came. The 39-year-old was shot in public at point-blank range. The news devastated Malcolm s followers. But other people reacted with relief. Malcolm X had always been a lightning rod. Some had felt he did the civil rights movement more harm than good. Still others including leaders of the Nation of Islam reacted with joy. Malcolm X had become an inconvenience to them and now he was out of the way. Three men were found guilty of the murder. But rumors of conspiracy and cover-up still swirl. Who gave the order for Malcolm X's murder? Why did two of the convicted killers insist upon their innocence even after being released from prison in the 1980s? In this chronicle of an assassination, find out the answers to these questions and learn more about the impact of Malcolm X's life, and his death, on civil rights in the United States.
$17.24The Autobiography of Malcolm X
Now available as an eBook for the very first time! • ONE OF TIME’S TEN MOST IMPORTANT NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY With its first great victory in the landmark Supreme Court decision Brown v. Board of Education in 1954, the civil rights movement gained the powerful momentum it needed to sweep forward into its crucial decade, the 1960s. As voices of protest and change rose above the din of history and false promises, one voice sounded more urgently, more passionately, than the rest. Malcolm X—once called the most dangerous man in America—challenged the world to listen and learn the truth as he experienced it. And his enduring message is as relevant today as when he first delivered it. 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 to veteran writer and journalist Alex Haley . In a unique collaboration, Haley worked with Malcolm X for nearly two years, interviewing, listening to, and understanding the most controversial leader of his time. Raised in Lansing, Michigan, Malcolm Little journeyed on a road to fame as astonishing as it was unpredictable. Drifting from childhood poverty to petty crime, Malcolm found himself in jail. It was there that he came into contact with the teachings of a little-known Black Muslim leader renamed Elijah Muhammad. The newly renamed Malcolm X devoted himself body and soul to the teachings of Elijah Muhammad and the world of Islam, becoming the Nation’s foremost spokesman. When his conscience forced him to break with Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm founded the Organization of Afro-American Unity to reach African Americans across the country with an inspiring message of pride, power, and self-determination. The Autobiography of Malcolm X defines American culture and the African American struggle for social and economic equality that has now become a battle for survival. Malcolm’s 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. StoneThe Re-Assassination of Malcolm X
This book is a response to the very disturbing book by Manning Marable, Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention. Under the guise of “humanizing” Malcolm, Marable and the array of secret forces behind him in fact demonize him. To accomplish this, his book’s approach is a slow, subtle, deliberate, methodical strategy to “assassinate” Malcolm--again--as it were, charging, among other things, that he was both gay, and simultaneously cheated on his girlfriend with other females. Also, Marable accuses Malcolm of having cheated on wife Betty with several women. Convincing evidence in The Re-Assassination of Malcolm X proves the folly of Marable's contentions. There can be no doubt that a conglomeration of Malcolm’s long-time enemies has worked in concert to cleverly dismantle his legacy. Marable's book is particularly insidious because it engages the reader with fascinating details and blow-by-blow action, then injects him with a dose of powerful poison in the form of misinformation, or spins on the truth. You may feel good reading his book at times, but I promise you it will leave you with an intellectual STD! Every attempt is made to completely and thoroughly shatter any so-called “romanticized version” of the life of Brother Minister. The Re-Assassination of Malcolm X is an effort to set the record straight.
$20.95The Assassinations: Probe Magazine on JFK, MLK, RFK and Malcolm X
“Throughout the ‘90s, Lisa Pease and Jim DiEugenio covered the issues and reported on new developments in the JFK, MLK and RFK assassination cases in remarkable depth. Their book is a must-read to understand how these leaders were systematically eliminated. It is a unique volume in the literature on this subject.” — William Turner, former FBI agent and co-author of Deadly Secrets “Jim DiEugenio and Lisa Pease are archaeologists of our secret history. This volume of collected articles from Probe is a revelation to the uninitiated, a necessary witness for the rest of us, and a lasting testament to their research and courage over the years.” — Oliver Stone, director of JFK “Here is the Rite of Spring of assassination investigations. It launches huge masses of new detail, bends your mind in twelve different directions, swallows you whole, and spits you out into a steaming landscape where two different Lee Oswalds are inexorably making their way toward Dallas to change American history forever.” — Jon Rappoport, author, investigative reporter “Collaboratively compiled, organized and edited by James DiEugenio and Lisa Pease, The Assassinations is an extensive collection of articles drawn from Probe magazine concerning the murders of President John Kennedy, the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., Robert Kennedy and Malcolm X. A questing compendium of tantalizing truths, cover-ups, obvious and hidden motives, and the struggle to track trails and pin down culprits, The Assassinations is a fascinating, involving, informative and occasionally iconoclastic resource especially recommended to the attention of conspiracy buffs.” — Midwest Book Review “(T)he book is beautifully argued and boasts a phenomenal amount of brow furrowing facts and insight. The Assassinations is definitely one for those that can handle the truth.” — Dazed & Confused “Thought-provoking… One of the most chilling books you’re likely to ever read.” — Pasadena Weekly “Probing deep into four hidden histories… the material released should dispel any notions of ‘lone nuts’ or coincidence not merely in the JFK assassination, but in the assassinations of Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and Robert Kennedy as well… These articles cut a clear path through the thick jungle of disinformation that has grown around these events and expose the truly hideous teratomas that thrive and bloom under the canopy of ‘national security’… Feral House is to be commended on their courage for publishing this book in these dark times.” — New York Press “Pours new fuel into the ongoing furor vis-a-vis snafus, cover-ups, conspiracies, and alternative endings to the most famous American assassination cases of the last 50 years.” — Anneli Rufus “Steering clear of potentially crackpot theories, the editors dedicate themselves to the presentation of facts that deconstruct and devastate such insulting documents as the Warren Report… Perhaps after reading The Assassinations, the American public will pressure Congress to initiate a full-scale investigation into the Bush administration’s complicity in the 9/11 assassinations and various other crimes. For now, readers’ understanding of the ‘cataclysmic homicide’ of JFK and other potential and actual revolutionaries will be inevitably deepened by this impressive work.” — Jaye Beldo, Rain Taxi People’s Pick: “Thought-provoking… one of the most chilling books you’re likely to ever read.” — LA Alternative Press “In the wake of the failures of the Warren Commission, we are fortunate that independent scholars like Jim DiEugenio and Lisa Pease have displayed a desire to pursue the truth in regards to the assassinations of President Kennedy and those that occurred thereafter. The American people will be well served by closely reading their work on these important events.” — Robert Tannenbaum, Deputy Counsel, House Select Committee on Assassinations and Assistant Chief of Homicide, New York District Attorney’s Office

$29.73Why The CIA Killed JFK and Malcolm X: The Secret Drug Trade in Laos
This book breaks new ground in two important areas that have yet to be linked and explored by any JFK-assassination historian. John Koerner argues that the CIA’s secret drug trade in Laos, and the president’s effort to end it, provided the primary motive that the CIA needed to assassinate the president. A lot of effort has been made to examine the president’s Vietnam policy, but precious little attention has been paid to the opium trade in Laos that was making the CIA wealthy and powerful beyond its wildest dreams. This book chronicles the president’s secret war with the CIA over Laos, a high-stakes game that cost him his life. Koerner also links the JFK assassination and the drug trade with the other three major assassinations of the 1960s: Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, and Robert F. Kennedy. We will see that all four of the assassinations are linked together, all funded and executed by the CIA to silence the four most vocal leaders who were opposed to the agency’s pro-war and pro-drug policy in Laos and Vietnam. Finally, Koerner examines the impact this has had on the course of history, and imagines a world where these men had lived.
