Published on: 28th August 2016

The first comprehensive collection of writings by the Black Panther Party founder and revolutionary icon of the black liberation era, The Huey P. Newton Reader combines now-classic texts ranging in topic from the formation of the Black Panthers, African Americans and armed self-defense, Eldridge Cleaver’s controversial expulsion from the Party, FBI infiltration of civil rights groups, the Vietnam War, and the burgeoning feminist movement with never-before-published writings from the Black Panther Party archives and Newton’s private collection, including articles on President Nixon, prison martyr George Jackson, Pan-Africanism, affirmative action, and the author’s only written account of his political exile in Cuba in the mid-1970s. Eldridge Cleaver, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis, Mumia Abu-Jamal, and Geronimo Pratt all came to international prominence through Newton’s groundbreaking political activism. Additionally, Newton served as the Party’s chief intellectual engine, conversing with world leaders such as Yasser Arafat, Chinese Premier Chou Enlai, and Mozambique President Samora Moises Machel among others.

    Must read for any Huey P. Newton fan or anyone interested in black panther theories. I think that the Panthers focused too much on race on not class (it is the ruling class, predominately white, that is the object of the theoried oppression, not the white race, and the Panthers and Huey made the bad mistake of separating like minded progressive poor whites or possible ones that they could have recruited by using bad rhetoric, such as constantly naming the enemy as “The White Man” not “The Ruling Class” While they essentially did have there eyes on the proper enemy, they, as I said, made the huge mistake, including Huey, of using that improper rhetoric and separating many working class, poor, and other whites who could have been allies to their civil rights and other causes, and also demonized themselves this way in the media).

    Despite this, the Huey P. Newton reader, along with his autobiography “Revolutionary Suicide” which Penguin finally reprinted a few years ago which was long overdue, are must reads for any activist, anarchist, anarcho-socialist, liberatarian, in order to add to their socio-political tool belt. – Amazon Review
