批評家のレビュー

"A prodigiously researched work, utilizing academic literature, personal memoir, and conversations with former Black Panther members and associates...." ( Publishers Weekly)

あらすじ・解説

In Oakland, California, in 1966, community college students Bobby Seale and Huey Newton armed themselves, began patrolling the police, and promised to prevent police brutality. Unlike the Civil Rights Movement that called for full citizenship rights for blacks within the US, the Black Panther Party rejected the legitimacy of the US government and positioned itself as part of a global struggle against American imperialism. In the face of intense repression, the Party flourished, becoming the center of a revolutionary movement with powerful allies around the world.

Black Against Empire is the first comprehensive overview and analysis of the history and politics of the Black Panther Party. The authors analyze key political questions, such as why so many young black people across the country risked their lives for the revolution, why the Party grew most rapidly during the height of repression, and why allies abandoned the Party at its peak of influence.

Bold, engrossing, and richly detailed, this book cuts through the mythology and obfuscation, revealing the political dynamics that drove the explosive growth of this revolutionary movement and its disastrous unraveling.

Excellent!! Who Knew??

Of course one knows about the Black Panthers, but does one “really” know about the Black Panthers? Their influences, their alliances and the many influences as the Civil Rights Movement gave way to the Black Power Movement.

This book does an excellent job of telling their story from rise to fall. Perhaps the only shortcoming is the failure to effectively tie in the utilization of drugs to the destruction of their effectiveness. I don’t want to suggest that it was the only reason, but another reason & was totally excluded from consideration.

In any event the lessons are many & the ask in the conclusion as to why no similar insurgency type organization exists today, is just as cogent of an ask, as any in the book. Well done! BTW, the animated story telling is the best that I’ve heard, to-date & this was about my 5th audible.

good book, but distractingly non linear

good Book, and I'm sure highly researched, but the author does a horrible job of keeping things linear... he'll talk about one person or another doing this or that at a point where the story still has them in jail or already dead -- and when you're trying to get the context of something you never knew anything about it makes it very difficult.

the opening few hours are riveting and very well told and then it gets dry and as I said nonlinear

Very Informative. Quite a bit of jumping around

The voice of the narrator didnt exactly match the material being narrated. But the overall content was excellent. Getting the hardback

Excellent

I've read some great books on the black panthers, from Assata and Angela's autobiography, the assisination of Fred Hampton, this is one of the best books I've read on the subject. If your looking to educate yourself on the Panthers movements, and your reading the comments trying to decide, trust me, read this!

Amazing history of which I knew little

This history of the Black Panthers is so informative; I've learned so much. The were active when I was a kid growing up in Boston so I certainly knew of them along with the Students for a Democratic Society. I saw protests against the Vietnam War, civil unrest, race riots and more on the news. There were riots in Boston even. I understood many of the reasons, but this history gave me a broader understanding of how the Black Panthers came to be, what law enforcement and the government did to try to break them down, and why the organization ended.

I listened to this for Black History Month, but you can read or listen to this at any time. I recommend that you do, whether you know nothing or you know a lot about them. The narration is excellent which is important when there are so many names, dates, and activities.

Gives another insight of the Panthers

This was a very gripping book that gave in my opinion a balanced view of the positive and negative aspects of The Panthers. The narration was wonderful, all I can say is that I would recommend this book for anybody who wants to gain a greater understanding The Panthers.
