Summary Of The Book The Autobiography of Malcolm X Reissue Edition records various interviews taken of Malcolm X wherein he propounds his philosophies on the nation, black pride, nationalism as well as the pan-African view. This book is a result of collaboration between Alex Haley and Malcolm X. This work begins with Malcolm X speaking directly about his childhood which he spent in Michigan. Sensitive issues like his father’s sudden death and his mother that sent him spiraling into an unstable mental state are dealt with in details. Malcolm X’s role in organized crime in New York City and Boston are also stated. The arrest and the years of prison sentence are also spoken about directly by him. As a national spokesperson for his ministry, he speaks about his joining and departure from the Nation of Islam. The religious uncertainty and his conversion to Sunni Islam led him to travel to Mecca and then Africa. With his assassination, the narrative shifts from the direct speech to reported speech once Malcolm X is assassinated in February 1965. Alex Haley summarizes his life and provides a moving epilogue. The Autobiography of Malcolm X Reissue Edition was well received and gathered good reviews from the The New York Times.

ONE OF TIME’S TEN MOST IMPORTANT NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

In the searing pages of this classic autobiography, originally published in 1964, Malcolm X, the Muslim leader, firebrand, and anti-integrationist, tells the extraordinary story of his life and the growth of the Black Muslim movement. His fascinating perspective on the lies and limitations of the American Dream, and the inherent racism in a society that denies its nonwhite citizens the opportunity to dream, gives extraordinary insight into the most urgent issues of our own time. The Autobiography of Malcolm X stands as the definitive statement of a movement and a man whose work was never completed but whose message is timeless. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand America.

Praise for The Autobiography of Malcolm X

“Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force of will.”—Barack Obama, Dreams from My Father

“Extraordinary . . . a brilliant, painful, important book.”The New York Times

“A great book . . . Its dead level honesty, its passion, its exalted purpose, will make it stand as a monument to the most painful truth.”The Nation

“The most important book I’ll ever read, it changed the way I thought, it changed the way I acted. It has given me courage I didn’t know I had inside me. I’m one of hundreds of thousands whose lives were changed for the better.”—Spike Lee

“This book will have a permanent place in the literature of the Afro-American struggle.”—I. F. Stone
