The C.L.R. James Reader

WAS £20.00 £10.00

Product description

Author of such classic works as Minty Alley , The Black Jacobins and Beyond a Boundary , C. L. R. James was one of the most significant writers of our times. In a life which reflected many of the distinctive features of the twentieth century (from his birth in Trinidad in 1901, to his death in Brixton, London, 1989), James made an outstanding contribution to debates on politics, history, art, literature and sport. His revolutionary vision has inspired social movements in the United States, Britain, Africa and the Caribbean. It remains central to any understanding of the modern world. Until now much of his work has remained inaccessible; but Anna Grimshaw brings together here both published and unpublished material to give us the essential C. L. R. James. Prepared in collaboration with James in his final year, this collection offers unique insight into the range and development of his life's work. It includes a selection of early fiction, the complete text of the play The Black Jacobins , numerous extracts from his personal archive and the classic essays, The Case for West-Indian Self-Government , Popular Art and the Cultural Tradition and Black Power.

Edited by Anna Grimshaw.

Scuffed edges & marks on inside of front cover, previous owners name on first page. All text pages in good condition.
