$51.06Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention
Years in the making--the definitive biography of the legendary black activist. Of the great figure in twentieth-century American history perhaps none is more complex and controversial than Malcolm X. Constantly rewriting his own story, he became a criminal, a minister, a leader, and an icon, all before being felled by assassins' bullets at age thirty-nine. Through his tireless work and countless speeches he empowered hundreds of thousands of black Americans to create better lives and stronger communities while establishing the template for the self-actualized, independent African American man. In death he became a broad symbol of both resistance and reconciliation for millions around the world. Manning Marable's new biography of Malcolm is a stunning achievement. Filled with new information and shocking revelations that go beyond the Autobiography, Malcolm X unfolds a sweeping story of race and class in America, from the rise of Marcus Garvey and the Ku Klux Klan to the struggles of the civil rights movement in the fifties and sixties. Reaching into Malcolm's troubled youth, it traces a path from his parents' activism through his own engagement with the Nation of Islam, charting his astronomical rise in the world of Black Nationalism and culminating in the never-before-told true story of his assassination. Malcolm X will stand as the definitive work on one of the most singular forces for social change, capturing with revelatory clarity a man who constantly strove, in the great American tradition, to remake himself anew.

$23.34The 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
