Availability: in stock at our Melbourne warehouse.

Author: Cedric J. Robinson

Format: Paperback / softback

Number of Pages: 496


A foundational work of Black Radical critical theory, now to be widely available here for the first time Any struggle must be fought on a people's own terms, argues Cedric Robinson's landmark account of Black radicalism. Marxism is a western construction, and therefore inadequate to describe the significance of Black communities as agents of change against 'racial capitalism'. Tracing the emergence of European radicalism, the history of Black African resistance and the influence of these on such key thinkers as W. E. B. Du Bois, C. L. R. James and Richard Wright, Black Marxism reclaims the story of a movement.
