READING: Now available as an eBook for the very first time! • 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

READING: In ‘Dromen van mijn vader’ vertelt Barack Obama helder, meeslepend en zonder vals sentiment hoe hij als zoon van een zwarte Afrikaanse vader en een witte Amerikaanse moeder probeert een betekenisvol Amerikaans leven te leiden. Hij is opgevoed door zijn moeder; zijn vader was de grote afwezige, een figuur in verhalen. Wanneer hij hoort dat zijn vader is omgekomen bij een verkeersongeluk, besluit Obama op zoek te gaan naar zijn wortels. Via Kansas en Hawaï reist hij uiteindelijk naar Kenia, waar hij zijn Afrikaanse familie ontmoet. Daar leert hij over de familie waaruit hij is voortgekomen, en hij neemt zich voor het zelf anders te doen. Dat was het begin van een fenomenale carrière als advocaat, senator en uiteindelijk: president.

READING: REA's MAXnotes for Alex Haley's *The Autobiography of Malcolm X* MAXnotes offer a fresh look at masterpieces of literature, presented in a lively and interesting fashion. Written by literary experts who currently teach the subject, MAXnotes will enhance your understanding and enjoyment of the work. MAXnotes are designed to stimulate independent thought about the literary work by raising various issues and thought-provoking ideas and questions. MAXnotes cover the essentials of what one should know about each work, including an overall summary, character lists, an explanation and discussion of the plot, the work's historical context, illustrations to convey the mood of the work, and a biography of the author. Each chapter is individually summarized and analyzed, and has study questions and answers. Amazon.com Review Malcolm X's searing memoir belongs on the small shelf of great autobiographies. The reasons are many: the blistering honesty with which he recounts his transformation from a bitter, self-destructive petty criminal into an articulate political activist, the continued relevance of his militant analysis of white racism, and his emphasis on self-respect and self-help for African Americans. And there's the vividness with which he depicts black popular culture--try as he might to criticize those lindy hops at Boston's Roseland dance hall from the perspective of his Muslim faith, he can't help but make them sound pretty wonderful. These are but a few examples. The Autobiography of Malcolm X limns an archetypal journey from ignorance and despair to knowledge and spiritual awakening. When Malcolm tells coauthor Alex Haley, "People don't realize how a man's whole life can be changed by one book," he voices the central belief underpinning every attempt to set down a personal story as an example for others. Although many believe his ethic was directly opposed to Martin Luther King Jr.'s during the civil rights struggle of the '60s, the two were not so different. Malcolm may have displayed a most un-Christian distaste for loving his enemies, but he understood with King that love of God and love of self are the necessary first steps on the road to freedom. --Wendy Smith Review Biography, published in 1965, of the American black militant religious leader and activist who was born Malcolm Little. Written by Alex Haley, who had conducted extensive audiotaped interviews with Malcolm X just before his assassination in 1965, the book gained renown as a classic work on black American experience. The Autobiography recounts the life of Malcolm X from his traumatic childhood plagued by racism to his years as a drug dealer and pimp, his conversion to the Black Muslim sect (Nation of Islam) while in prison for burglary, his subsequent years of militant activism, and the turn late in his life to more orthodox Islam. --The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature

READING: De maagdenkooi is eigenlijk een dubbele kooi: in de binnenste kooi zitten de vrouwen en meisjes opgesloten. Over deze vrouwenkooi heen staat weer een grotere kooi waarin de hele islamitische cultuur zit opgesloten.' Ondanks bedreigingen blijft Ayaan Hirsi Ali pleiten voor de vrijheid van moslimvrouwen en haalt zij fel uit naar de verdedigers van de multiculturele samenleving. Zo noemt ze het uithuwelijken van moslimmeisjes niet geïmporteerde liefde, maar geïmporteerde liefdeloosheid, gearrangeerde verkrachting. In De maagdenkooi zijn Ayaan Hirsi Ali's essays en lezingen uit 2003 en 2004 bijeengebracht, aangevuld met haar ervaringen als tolk voor Somalische vrouwen in blijf-van-mijn-lijfhuizen en asielcentra. Met haar onverschrokken optreden schaart Ayaan Hirsi Ali zich in de internationale gelederen van vrouwen als de Iraans-Franse schrijfster Chahdortt Djavann, de Nobelprijswinnares Shirin Ebadi en de Algerijns-Noorse cabaretière Shaban Rachmani, die allen de strijd aanbinden met de onderdrukking van vrouwen door de islam.

READING: Unieke kijk op rassenpolitiek tijdens en na het Obama-tijdperk Van de allereerste zwarte president van de Verenigde Staten naar de verkiezing van de man die door Coates wordt omschreven als de ‘eerste witte president’ van Amerika. Het contrast kon nauwelijks groter zijn. En toch is dit niet de eerste keer in de Amerikaanse geschiedenis dat er na acht jaar van hoopvolle vooruitgang ineens een drastische koerswijziging plaatsvond. ‘We waren acht jaar aan de macht,' zo klonk de klaagzang van zwarte politici toen de blanke overheersing terugkeerde in het zuiden van de VS na een periode tijdens de Reconstructie waarin er een einde leek te komen aan de rassenscheiding. Coates verbindt het heden met dit tragische verleden en onderzoekt het presidentschap van Barack Obama en hoe de radicale ommekeer in Amerika tot stand is gekomen. Het boek bestaat uit een selectie van Coates’ meest iconische publicaties voor The Atlantic en acht nieuw geschreven essays waarin hij een unieke kijk geeft op de rassenpolitiek tijdens en na het Obama-tijdperk vanuit een persoonlijk en intiem perspectief.
