The Fire Next Time Book Excerpt:

A national bestseller when it first appeared in 1963, The Fire Next Time galvanized the nation, gave passionate voice to the emerging civil rights movement—and still lights the way to understanding race in America today. "Basically the finest essay I’ve ever read. . . . Baldwin refused to hold anyone’s hand. He was both direct and beautiful all at once. He did not seem to write to convince you. He wrote beyond you.” —Ta-Nehisi Coates At once a powerful evocation of James Baldwin's early life in Harlem and a disturbing examination of the consequences of racial injustice, the book is an intensely personal and provocative document from the iconic author of If Beale Street Could Talk and Go Tell It on the Mountain. It consists of two "letters," written on the occasion of the centennial of the Emancipation Proclamation, that exhort Americans, both black and white, to attack the terrible legacy of racism. Described by The New York Times Book Review as "sermon, ultimatum, confession, deposition, testament, and chronicle...all presented in searing, brilliant prose," The Fire Next Time stands as a classic of literature.

Summary of James Baldwin s The Fire Next Time Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Book Preview: #1 I write to you as a brother and a father. I have carried your father in my arms and on my shoulders, kissed and spanked him, and watched him learn to walk. I do not know if you have known anyone from that far back, but if you have loved anyone that long, you gain a strange perspective on time and human pain. #2 You were born in America, to parents who were not bitter. But your countrymen have caused you to be born under conditions not very far removed from those described by Charles Dickens in the London of more than a hundred years ago. You were born to be loved, and to strengthen you against the loveless world. #3 The limits of your ambition were predetermined as you were born into a society that made clear to you from an early age that you were inferior to white people. You were not expected to achieve excellence, but to make peace with mediocrity.

Recovered Writers recovered Texts Book Excerpt:

Adopting an inclusive pan-American approach to black women's literature, Recovered Writers/Recovered Texts offers fresh readings of previously neglected works by black women writers from the United States, the Caribbean, and Latin America. In this radical reassessment, the contributors present the black woman writer in all her rich complexity by seeking affinities among writers across the Americas, thus moving away from a compartmentalized manner of studying black literature and toward a comprehensive examination of black American identities. Using a wide range of critical methods, the essays address marginalized yet significant works by writers such as Mary Prince, Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, Anna J. Cooper, Jessie Fauset, Ann Petry, and Virginia Bridis de Salas. The contributors -- including both established scholars and emerging ones -- engage issues of genre, gender, geopolitics, and diasporan aesthetics raised by the varied lives and works considered in this collection. The volume as a whole reveals the similarities among geographically diverse black women writers and documents a number of common artistic themes and concerns, including the writer's place within the community, the construction of black sexuality, and the representation of a self that is black and female. Through their historic recovery and critical reclamation of black texts, the essayists demonstrate how black feminist scholarship since the 1960s has both shaped and reconstructed the ongoing tradition of black woman's literature in the Americas. Recovered Writers/Recovered Texts acknowledges the central role black women have played in the production of American literary meaning and makes an importantcontribution by reassessing the ways in which African American literature can be understood and taught.

This work examines the experiences of African Americans under the law and how African American culture has fostered a rich tradition of legal criticism. Moving between novels, music, and visual culture, the essays present race as a significant factor within legal discourse. Essays examine rights and sovereignty, violence and the law, and cultural ownership through the lens of African American culture. The volume argues that law must understand the effects of particular decisions and doctrines on African American life and culture and explores the ways in which African American cultural production has been largely centered on a critique of law.

Politics and the Media Book Excerpt:

"The book is very timely and it has good case studies for students to discuss in class. It has chapters on race- and gender-related issues. You can use it as the main textbook, or you can assign it as supplementary reading material." —Ivy Shen, PhD. Southeast Missouri State University Politics and the Media: Intersections and New Directions examines how media and political institutions interact to shape public thinking and debates around social problems, cultural norms, and policies. From the roles of race and gender in American politics to the 2020 elections and the global coronavirus pandemic, this is an extraordinary moment for politicians, the news media, and democracy itself. Drawing from years of experience as an active political media analyst, an award-winning journalist and professor of politics and the media, Jane Hall explores how media technologies, practices, and formats shape political decision-making; how political forces influence media institutions; and how public opinion and media audiences are formed. Students will gain an understanding of these issues through a combination of scholarship, in-depth interviews, and contemporary case-studies that will help them develop their own views and learn to express them constructively.

The Fire Is Upon Us Book Excerpt:

"In February 1965, novelist and 'poet of the Black Freedom Struggle' James Baldwin and political commentator and father of the modern American conservative movement William F. Buckley met in Cambridge Union to face-off in a televised debate. The topic was 'The American Dream is at the expense of the American Negro.' Buccola uses this momentous encounter as a lens through which to deepen our understanding of two of the most important public intellectuals in twentieth century American thought. The book begins by providing intellectual biographies of each debater. As Buckley reflected on the civil rights movement, he did so from the perspective of someone who thought the dominant norms and institutions in the United States were working quite well for most people and that they would eventually work well for African-Americans. From such a perspective, any ideology, personality, or movement that seems to threaten those dominant norms and institutions must be deemed a threat. Baldwin could not bring himself to adopt such a bird's eye point of view. Instead, he focused on the 'inner lives' of those involved on all sides of the struggle. Imagine what it must be like, he told the audience at Cambridge, to have the sense that your country has not 'pledged its allegiance to you?' Buccola weaves the intellectual biographies of these two larger-than-life personalities and their fabled debate with the dramatic history of the civil rights movement that includes a supporting cast of such figures as Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Lorraine Hansberry, and George Wallace. Buccola shows that the subject of their debate continues to have resonance in our own time as the social mobility of blacks remains limited and racial inequality persists"--

A Political Companion to James Baldwin Book Excerpt:

“Uniformly excellent” essays on the work of the renowned author and his “extraordinary relevance in the present moment” (Choice). In seminal works such as Go Tell It on the Mountain, Notes of a Native Son, and The Fire Next Time, acclaimed author and social critic James Baldwin expresses his profound belief that writers have the power to transform society, engage the public, and inspire and channel conversation to achieve lasting change. While Baldwin is best known for his writings on racial consciousness and injustice, he is also one of the country’s most eloquent theorists of democratic life and the national psyche. In this book, prominent scholars assess the prolific author's relevance to present-day political challenges. Together, they address Baldwin as a democratic theorist, activist, and citizen, examining his writings on the civil rights movement, religion, homosexuality, and women’s rights. They investigate the ways in which his work speaks to and galvanizes a collective American polity, and explore his views on the political implications of individual experience in relation to race and gender. This volume not only considers Baldwin’s works within their own historical context, but also applies the author’s insights to recent events such as the Obama presidency and the Black Lives Matter movement, emphasizing his faith in the connections between the past and present. These incisive essays will encourage a new reading of Baldwin that celebrates his significant contributions to political and democratic theory.

This book offers a fresh perspective on Richard Rorty by situating his work in the arena of political theory. Reinterpreting Rorty's much-maligned antirepresentationalism as a Romantic affirmation of the power of imaginative writing, Voparil firmly grounds Rorty in an American tradition that includes not only James and Dewey, but Emerson, Whitman, and James Baldwin, and initiates an overdue reassessment of this important thinker's value to the political discourse of the 21st century.
