Cedric J. Robinson is considered one of the doyens of Black Studies and a pioneer in study of the Black Radical Tradition. His works have been essential texts, deconstructing racial capitalism and inspiring insurgent movements from Ferguson to the West Bank.*BR**BR*For the first time, Robinson's essays come together, spanning over four decades and reflective of his diverse interests in the interconnections between culture and politics, radical social theory and classic and modern political philosophy. Themes explored include Africa and Black internationalism, World politics, race and US Foreign Policy, representations of Blackness in popular culture, and reflections on popular resistance to racial capitalism, white supremacy and more.*BR**BR*Accompanied by an introduction by H. L. T. Quan and a foreword by Ruth Wilson Gilmore, this collection, which includes previously unpublished materials, extends the many contributions by a giant in Black radical thought.

'Before the movement for black lives made black radicalism cool for millennials, Cedric Robinson did the work of excavating an intellectual history we rely upon today'
The Root

'Like W. E. B. Du Bois, Michel Foucault, Sylvia Wynter, and Edward Said, Robinson was that rare polymath capable of seeing the whole. No discipline could contain him. He left behind a body of work to which we must return constantly and urgently'
Robin D. G. Kelley, author of 'Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination'

'This astonishing collection lets readers see how Robinson elaborated the concept of racial capitalism, now so resonant in academia and beyond. It also shows us the wide-ranging intellect of Robinson, a deeply original and learned thinker on so many fronts'
David Roediger, author of 'Class, Race and Marxism'

'There's no better time for the publication of this book... Cedric J. Robinson has it right!'
Dr. Lenore J. Daniels, Columnist and Editorial Board member, theblackcommentator.com

'Providing amazing political and intellectual history and extension beyond the already classic 'Black Marxism', the unexpected gift of these essays makes visible the praxis of Cedric Robinson'
Carole Boyce Davies, author of 'Left of Karl Marx: The Political Life of Black Communist Claudia Jones'
