This is Cornel West's first book and lays out a perspective that has infomred his writing over the last three decades even as that perspective has changed and matured. He gives a brilliant overview of Marxism, Prophetic Christianity, radical African American politics, and the influence of Western Culture on all of them. In typical West fashion, he says a bundle in each sentence, so this is not a quick or easy read. However, it is a great introduction to Black Liberation theology from a perspective of someone other than James Cone.
