Summary
ONE OF TIME 'S TEN MOST IMPORTANT NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

In the searing pages of this classic autobiography, originally published in 1964, Malcolm X, the Muslim leader, firebrand, and anti-integrationist, tells the extraordinary story of his life and the growth of the Black Muslim movement. His fascinating perspective on the lies and limitations of the American Dream, and the inherent racism in a society that denies its nonwhite citizens the opportunity to dream, gives extraordinary insight into the most urgent issues of our own time. The Autobiography of Malcolm X stands as the definitive statement of a movement and a man whose work was never completed but whose message is timeless. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand America.

Praise for The Autobiography of Malcolm X

"Extraordinary . . . a brilliant, painful, important book." -- The New York Times

"This book will have a permanent place in the literature of the Afro-American struggle." --I. F. Stone
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 7^-12. Malcolm X was always transforming himself, whether on his pilgrimage to Mecca or in the streets of Harlem, and his religious faith was part of his political growth. "It is only after the deepest darkness that the greatest joy can come; it is only after slavery and prison that the sweetest appreciation of freedom can come," he said. A book that will stimulate much discussion about faith and identity."
