To avoid falling prey to a 'wikipedia' interpretation of the 1960's, please note that cutting-edge figures in the black radical tradition take real issue with the notion that Marable penned the definitive biography of Malcolm X.


Not sure what you mean by the "wikipedia interpretation." The wikipedia entry for the book itself cites many examples of hostile reception. For me the great value of the book is not in the demystification of a deified martyr via sensationalistic details and innuendo, but rather in the provision of context that a reader doesn't really get from the Autobiography, eg the fuller picture of the Nation, etc.

Wikipedia reference has to do with a conventional, superficial, surveys course reading of history.
