Selected Writings of C.L.R. James 1939-1949

In this collection of hard-to-find articles and essays, his towering intellect and engaging style touch on a diverse array of topics.

Paul Le Blanc is a professor of history at La Roche College, and he has written on and participated in the US labor, radical, and civil rights movements.
