This highly popular book on the great African-American Muslim illustrates the influence of his Islamic faith and his international experience upon his constantly expanding political vision.
“Numerous works have been written on the life and ideals of Malcolm X by a marxist, liberal, communist, capitalist or Black Power follower which, obviously, paid scant regard to the total Islamic commitment of Malcolm X. Therefore, this contribution by a Muslim to clarify and analyze in depth the ideals of Malcolm X on the basis of the Qur’an and Sunnah is long overdue… Kly makes an excellent comparative study of Malcolm’s ideological moorings in Islam… Highly recommended to any serious radical scholar…” Jamalludien Ahmed Hamdulah, Muslim Views, South Africa
