Yes it is. Yes, it is theoretical weekends at Scission and this week I think we shall go the book review route. I actually recently read the book reviewed here, so myself will be interested in seeing just what this reviewer had to say about it.By now you all know I am a fan of CLR James and this little book-let I had somehow missed for the past few decades...or, quite possibly, I forgot I read it. Who knows. Be all that as it may, I won't bother you with my thoughts, but will merely pass along this from Insurgent Notes.
A small and dangerous volume, this republication of C.L.R. James’s A History of Pan-African Revolt is a concise survey of Black freedom struggles in the United States, the Caribbean, and on the African continent from 1739–1969. A product of two periods in his life and work, his first British years (1932–38) where he emerged as the author of The Black Jacobins, the classic history of the Haitian Revolution; and his second American sojourn (1969–79) where he was a mentor to Black Power activists who had been members of SNCC, the Black Panther Party, and the League of Revolutionary Black Workers; this book documents famous and obscure race and class struggles in two parts written from the vantage of 1939 and 1969 respectively.
