    REVIEWS

    "Numerous works have been written on the life and ideals of Malcolm X by a marxist,
    liberal, communist, capitalist or Black Power follower which, obviously, paid scant regard
    to the total Islamic commitment of Malcolm X. Therefore, this contribution by a Muslim to
    clarify and analyze in depth the ideals of Malcolm X on the basis of the Qur'an and
    Sunnah is long overdue... Kly makes an excellent comparative study of Malcolm's
    ideological moorings in Islam... Highly recommended to any serious radical scholar..."
    Jamalludien Ahmed Hamdulah, Muslim Views, South Africa

    "Given the Black Americans' parochial experiences of disparate allocation of resources,
    Kly is acutely sensitive to the underdevelopment that, as he perceives, the America-
    centered capitalist system consciously inflicted upon Afro-Asian countries... Dr. Kly in
    1986 still views Marxism-tinted Muslim leaders like Nasser, Ben Bella and Ahmad
    Sekou Toure, like the non-Muslims Nelson Mandela and Ho Chi Minh, as successful
    national liberation leaders who mobilized masses with techniques that matched the
    "imperialist" powers' sophistication. However, Kly's own careful observation of Algeria,
    where he taught, perhaps bears fruit in his sharp characterization of the new Islamist
    protest movements of the 1970s and 1980s: these have rejected not just the Western
    powers and rightist regimes frankly allied to them but also left-nationalist ones more
    guided by Marx than Islam. He projects 'reawakening Islam' as a 'third ideological force'
    that many in the Asian and African countries seize as a road to rapid holistic change and
    development."
    Dr. Dennis Walker, Holiday, Bangladesh

    "The Black Book is carefully being passed from hand to hand or from heart to heart..."

    SYNOPSIS

    Now in its sixth printing, this highly popular book on the great African-American Muslim
    illustrates the influence of his Islamic faith and his international experience upon his
    constantly expanding political vision. The first to present a comprehensive analysis
    that integrates the developing vision of the man, Malcolm X, with the man he became,
    El Hajj Malik El Shabazz, it provides an in-depth analysis of Malcolm's directives on
    why the African-American struggle for national liberation and self-determination is
    necessary, how it should be carried on, and why it can succeed.

    "The Islamic force tends to act against nationalism as introduced by western
    European development and socialism as introduced in the development of the
    USSR and China. It is both anti-nationalist and anti-materialistic. All aspects of
    societal life are viewed as an integral part of the whole, the din, the one God.
    Thus all aspects of life in the state must be theoretically harmonized so as to
    achieve spiritual peace, happiness and total submission to the will of one
    God. Both the governing elite and masses are theoretically equalized by rules
    and principles from outside of society (the Qur'an and Sunnah)..."
