C.L.R. James: Back in Style, Black in Style – a Review and a Comic!

Thursday, 24 April 2014- By Paul Buhle and Milton Knight, Truthout | Book Review 

C.L.R. James

C.L.R. James

C.L.R. James in Imperial Britain opens up the issue of the Third World struggle in an elegant and memorable way.

 (Author’s note: This marks the first appearance of excerpts from C.L.R.
