C.L.R. James : a life by Farrukh Dhondy( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Long-Overdue Critical Appreciation of the West Indian historian and political activist who played a towering role in the cause of Pan-Africanism in the twentieth century." "Born in Trinidad in 1901, Cyril Lionel Robert James was a precocious polymath all his life. By the time he was a teenager and already a certified teacher, he had embarked on a lifelong advocacy for the Trinidadian oppressed. He embraced Marxism while living in England during the 1930s, during which time he published, among other works, The Case for West Indian Self Government and his masterpiece, The Black Jacobins." "James lived in the United States from 1939 until he was expelled during the McCarthy terror for his political activities. Thereafter he divided his time between London and Trinidad (where he served as Secretary of the West Indies Federal Labor Party) and, until his death in 1989, wrote works of both fiction and nonfiction that would profoundly influence the Black Power movement in the United States and independence movements in Africa and the West Indies." "Farrukh Dhondy knew James personally and was given access to his papers. The result is a biography that is a revelation of the life and work of this legendary intellect and revolutionary."--Jacket

CLR James by Farrukh Dhondy( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published to coincide with the anniversary of his birth in Trinidad, Farrukh Dhondy's biography traces James's long career and many reinventions. It assesses the contribution James made to marxism, to the development of Black consciousness in Britain and the USA. It celebrates his love of cricket and shows how the concepts of fair play and gamesmanship could and did become the abiding principles of a Black colonial revolutionary." "Throughout the book, Farrukh Dhondy draws on his friendship with C. L. R. James which began when James was already an old man and continued until his death in Brixton at the age of 89. He draws on his acquaintanceship with James's friends, relatives and contemporaries. Dhondy's own long association with Black politics in the UK, which began with the Black Power movement in the seventies adds another facet to his analysis of James's politics and his evaluation of James's ultimate influence on Black immigrant life."--BOOK JACKET
