Description : The End of White World Supremacy explores a complex issue—integration of Blacks into White America—from multiple perspectives: within the United States, globally, and in the context of movements for social justice. Rod Bush locates himself within a tradition of African American activism that goes back at least to W.E.B. Du Bois. In so doing, he communicates between two literatures—world systems analysis and radical Black social movement history—and sustains the dialogue throughout the book. Bush explains how racial troubles in the U.S. are symptomatic of the troubled relationship between the white and dark worlds globally. Beginning with an account of white European dominance leading to capitalist dominance by White America, The Endof White World Supremacy ultimately wonders whether, as Myrdal argued in the 1940s, the American creed can provide a pathway to break this historical conundrum and give birth to international social justice.
Description : This epic 1921 work did not refer to a belief that whites should rule over other races, but merely that, as he put it, a man who in 1914 looked at a world map "got one fundamental impression: the overwhelming preponderance of the white race in the ordering of the world's affairs."It was this dominance, Stoddard said, which was coming to an end because of the massive demographic swings which he foresaw over the coming decades--just one of the many accurate predictions made in this book.Starting with an overview of the different races of the world and their traditional homelands, Stoddard pointed out how their technological backwardness allowed what he called the "white flood" to colonize all four corners of the earth.However, he continued, the transfer of European technology, learning and know-how to the nonwhite races of the earth had now empowered them, and as a result, the era of white domination was surely coming to an end.He warned that any policy which promoted open borders, and unrestricted immigration, would lead to the final and irreparable destruction of any European nation.He also foretold that the massive population boom of the Third World would sooner or later come pressing against all white nations' borders--driven forward by the Third World's inability to maintain order and progress, and the offer of a better life under white rule which they claimed to dislike so much.He was also one of the few to recognize the growing threat of militant Islam, and warned in this book that it would become a major world force.Stoddard argued that the only way to avoid a worldwide racial catastrophe was to educate people on the issue of race and the need for racial improvement through eugenics.Finally, he concluded that the only way to achieve racial peace was to abandon the concept of white supremacy completely.Front cover: A reproduction of the original 1921 edition dust jacket cover.
Description : Elijah Muhammad (1897-1975) was one of the most significant and controversial black leaders of the twentieth century. His followers called him the Messenger of Allah, while his critics labeled him a teacher of hate. Southern by birth, Muhammad moved north, eventually serving as the influential head of the Nation of Islam for over forty years. Claude Clegg III not only chronicles Muhammad's life, but also examines the history of American black nationalists and the relationship between Islam and the African American experience. In this authoritative biography, which also covers half a century of the evolution of the Nation of Islam, Clegg charts Muhammad's early life, his brush with Jim Crow in the South, his rise to leadership of the Nation of Islam, and his tumultuous relationship with Malcolm X. Clegg is the first biographer to weave together speeches and published works by Muhammad, as well as delving into declassified government documents, insider accounts, audio and video records, and interviews, producing the definitive account of an extraordinary man and his legacy.
