Read full description of the books The C. L. R. James Reader:Author of such classic works as Minty Alley, The Black Jacobins and Beyond a Boundary, C.L.R. James was one of the most significant writers of our times. James was born in 1901, in Trinidad. He died in London, in 1989. He lived a life which reflected many of the distinctive features of the twentieth century. James made an outstanding contribution to debates on politics, history, art, literature and sport. His revolutionary vision has inspired social movements in the United States, Britain, Africa and the Caribbean. It remains central to any understanding of the modern world.
Until now much of his work has remained inaccessible; but Anna Grimshaw brings together here both published and unpublished material to give us the essential C.L.R. James. This Reader includes a selection of early fiction, the complete text of the play The Black Jacobins, numerous extracts from his personal archive and the classic essays, "The Case of West-Indian Self-Government," "Popular Art and the Cultural Tradition," and "Black Power." Prepared in collaboration with James in his final year of life, this collection offers a unique insight into the range and development of his life's work.
