Praise for The Black Jacobins:
"Mr. James is not afraid to touch his pen with the flame of ardent personal feeling—a sense of justice, love of freedom, admiration for heroism, hatred for tyranny—and his detailed, richly documented and dramatically written book holds a deep and lasting interest."—The New York Times
Renowned as a ground breaking cultural theorist, the most influential chronicler of the Haitian revolution, and as a political activist, CLR James is widely considered as one of the most important Black intellectuals of the twentieth century.
