Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for History, the definitive biography of Malcolm X.

Hailed as "a masterpiece" (San Francisco Chronicle), the late Manning Marable's acclaimed biography of Malcolm X finally does justice to one of the most influential and controversial figures of twentieth-century American history.
