Of the great figures in 20th-century American history perhaps none is more complex and controversial than Malcolm X. Marable''s biography of Malcolm is a stunning achievement. Years in the making, this is the definitive biography of the legendary black activist.
From the Publisher:

"An extraordinary portrait of a man and his time. . . .A masterpiece." | -San Francisco Chronicle

The late Manning Marable's acclaimed biography of Malcolm X finally does justice to one of the most influential and controversial figures of twentieth-century American history. Filled with startling new information and shocking revelations, Malcolm X unfolds a sweeping story of race and class in America. Reaching into Malcolm's troubled youth, it traces a path from his parents' activism as followers of Marcus Garvey through his own work with the Nation of Islam and rise in the world of black nationalism, and culminates in the never-before-told true story of his assassination. Malcolm X is a stunning achievement, the definitive work on one of our greatest advocates for social change.

Annotation:
Malcolm X demands careful consideration for his role as a catalyst of American history in the second half of the twentieth century. His bestselling work written by and with Alex Haley--THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MALCOLM X--has long been considered a full and accurate account of his life and work. Now, Manning Marable presents both counterpoint and companion to that earlier work as he offers layers of new research and declassified records that revisit and rework the controversies surrounding Malcolm's life, including dispute with leader Elijah Muhammad, his marriage to Betty Shabbaz, and his assassination. All are presented anew, as MALCOLM X: A LIFE OF REINVENTION carries the figure of one of America's most important civil rights leaders into the 21st century. Selected by the editors of the New York Times Book Review as one of the Ten Best Books of 2011.

Praise

"[A] revealing and prodigiously researched new biography [that] vividly chronicles [the] many incarnations of his subject....One of the many achievements of this biography is that Mr. Marable manages to situate Malcolm X within the context of 20th-century racial politics in America without losing focus on his central character." - Michiko Kakutani 04/07/2011
