Black Awakening in Capitalist America: An Analytic History
Mr. Allen discusses the relationship between the power elite and Black discontent. He finds very little difference between those motivations and methods which create and maintain colonialism abroad and those which prevent Black self-determination in the UNited States. Mr. Allen examines various programs designed by the power elite to absorb radicalism and encourages its cooperation with the capitalistic structure. He does not see Black capitalism, Negro organization man, foundation grants, business-managed welfare or token political victories as aiding Black liberation but as producing an atmosphere conducive to even more comprehensive exploitation. "The Third World, the underdeveloped world, exists just as surely within America as it does across the seas", concludes Mr. Allen. "In the dialectic between Black and white America, a preview of what may be in store for the world can be glimpsed." (Back cover).
