The Death and Life of Malcolm X provides a dramatic portrait of one of the most important black leaders of the twentieth century. Focusing on Malcolm X's rise to prominence and the final year of his life, the book details his rift with the Nation of Islam and its leader, Elijah Muhammad, leading to death threats and eventually assassination at the hands of a death squad. In a new preface for this edition, Peter Goldman reflects on the forty years since the book's first publication and considers new information based on FBI surveillance that has since come to light.
Peter Goldman is an author and journalist living in New York City. A former national-affairs writer and senior editor at Newsweek, he is the author of eleven books including, most recently, his first novel, The Last Minstrel Show: A Detective Story.

Editorial Reviews

"Nowhere else in print has such a detailed, objective account of Malcolm X's last tragic years appeared. . . . Demonstrates how Malcolm X's influence in the black community became really significant upon his death."--Library Journal
