    Cleanly written but extremely Wikipedia like account of the rise and fall of the Black Panther Party An academic paper—so language is austere and direct uotes are chary Just the facts ma’m

    I'm not entirely sure who this book is for It is as previous reviewers noted a short introduction to the history of the Panthers written in 2007 While it may be a useful introduction for someone unfamiliar with the history being discussed particularly the opening chapter about the legacies of Malcolm X there are several problems namely a failure to articulate how brutal and horrific the government repression of the Panthers was and how explosively radical they were when they came on to the scene While it's clear there were problems with the dramatic growth of the BPP it needs to be clear that the clarity of their purpose of boldness of their revolutionary stand is exactly why thousands of young people were willing to join so readily While discussing the international work of the party Alkebulan leaves out critical context that the Panthers emerged in the swirl of an international revolutionary moment that they were engaged in dialogue and relationships not just with some governments but with living revolutionary movements engaged in similar national liberation struggles The book is strengthened by personal stories from party members in different localities and positions in the party and notable for raising the uestion of women in the party That said a comprehensive view of the Party is presented in the PBS documentary 'Vanguard of the Revolution' and 'Black Against Empire' is the single best book about the Panthers

    An important antidote to the skewed version many of us were taught in school written by a historian and former BPP member

  4. Alan Mills says:

    A good short summary of the growth and decline of the Black Panther Party The author was a member although only for a couple of years He does not soft peddle the many contradictions within the party but does understate the destructive role of the government's COINTELPRO campaign to destroy the party I do note the title is a little misleading as the discussion of the survival programs is superficial rather than the focus of the bookIt's a good introduction for those who know little about the history of the Black Panther Party But it won't significantly deepen your understanding if you already know the basic background

  5. Josepha says:

    Relatively non political work on the history of the Black Panther Party with praises where due and criticism where appropriate and reuired A lot of information on the ideological influences the role of women strategies undermining operations by the FBI and its community programs of the BPP and the major reasons for its ultimate downfall Very honest and doesn't gloss over certain incidents within the party like the schism and the related violence
