C. L. R. James and Revolutionary Marxism
Selected Writings of C.L.R. James 1939-1949

C. L. R. James was one of the most influential Marxists of his generation. His important contributions ranged from the subjects of Black liberation to contemporary philosophy and even touched on the anticolonial potential of cricket. In this collection of hard-to-find articles and essays, his towering intellect and engaging style touch on a diverse array of topics.

Scott McLemee writes the weekly column “Intellectual Affairs” for Inside Higher Ed.

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.

  • “It is within Revolutionary Marxism that it is possible to detect the most valuable theoretical guidelines of his political work. The introductory writings of Le Blanc, Van Gelderlen, Glaberman, Bracey and Buhle also help to reconstruct not only a theoretical but also a human and biographical profile of James himself.”Marx & Philosophy Review of Books
