Malcolm X demands careful consideration for his role as a catalyst of American history in the second half of the twentieth century. His bestselling work written by and with Alex Haley--THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MALCOLM X--has long been considered a full and accurate account of his life and work.

All are presented anew, as MALCOLM X: A LIFE OF REINVENTION carries the figure of one of America's most important civil rights leaders into the 21st century. Selected by the editors of the New York Times Book Review as one of the Ten Best Books of 2011.
