Publisher's Summary

The Black Panther Party (BPP) seized the attention of America in the frenetic days of the late 1960s when a series of assassinations, discontent with the Vietnam War, and impatience with lingering racial discrimination roiled the United States, particularly its cities. The BPP inspired dread among the American body politic while receiving support from many urban black youths. The images of angry and armed young black radicals in the streets of U.S. cities seemed a stunning reversal and repudiation of the accommodationist and assimilationist black goals associated with Martin Luther King's movement, as well as an unprecedented defiance of the civil power.

Although many have written about the BPP in memoirs and polemics, Survival Pending Revolution contributes to a new generation of objective, analytical BPP studies that are sorely needed. Alkebulan displays the entire movement's history, drawing a description that both understands the inner workings of the BPP and its role in the greater society.

Critic Reviews

" Survival Pending Revolution is more comprehensive than any other available work on the Black Panthers. It deserves a place on any reading list dealing with the history of the 1960s." ( Michigan Historical Review)
"This useful, concise addition to the scholarly literature on the Black Panther Party divides its history into three different ideological eras and explores the varying tendencies that marked the party between 1966 and 1971... Brief as it is, the book offers encouragement for further serious study of this important chapter in African American history." ( CHOICE)
" Survival Pending Revolution is a welcome and useful introduction to the history of the Black Panthers." ( The Journal of African American History)
