Columbia University historian and political scientist Manning Marable has been one of the preeminent public intellectuals in the social sciences for decades. A tireless and prolific voice for progressive causes, such as the abolition of prisoner disfranchisement laws, Marable has generated a tremendous body of publications on the topics of race, class and social justice in the U.S., writing scores of lively, accessible articles for popular and academic audiences alike.
A pioneering intellectual in the field of black studies and the founder of Columbia's Institute for Research in African-American Studies, Marable blends the disciplines of history, political science and sociology to address questions of racial justice, workers rights and other contemporary social issues. This new collection, a rich array of some of Marable's best writing from the last two decades, will prove invaluable to anyone who seeks better understanding of--and creative possible solutions to--the deep and enduring race, class and gender inequity in our society.
