If there was any one man who articulated the anger, the struggle, and the beliefs of African Americans in the 1960s, that man was Malxolm X. His AUTOBIOGRAPHY is now an established classic of modern America, a book that expresses like none other the crucial truth about our times.
"Extraordinary. A brilliant, painful, important book."

Malcolm X's searing memoir belongs on the small shelf of great autobiographies. The reasons are many: the blistering honesty with which he recounts his transformation from a bitter, self-destructive petty criminal into an articulate political activist, the continued relevance of his militant analysis of white racism, and his emphasis on self-respect and self-help for African Americans. And there's the vividness with which he depicts black popular culture--try as he might to criticize those lindy hops at Boston's Roseland dance hall from the perspective of his Muslim faith, he can't help but make them sound pretty wonderful. These are but a few examples. The Autobiography of Malcolm X limns an archetypal journey from ignorance and despair to knowledge and spiritual awakening. When Malcolm tells coauthor Alex Haley, "People don't realize how a man's whole life can be changed by one book," he voices the central belief underpinning every attempt to set down a personal story as an example for others. Although many believe his ethic was directly opposed to Martin Luther King Jr.'s during the civil rights struggle of the '60s, the two were not so different. Malcolm may have displayed a most un-Christian distaste for loving his enemies, but he understood with King that love of God and love of self are the necessary first steps on the road to freedom. --Wendy Smith


The Black leader discusses his political philosophy and reveals details of his life, shedding light on the ideas that enabled him to gain the allegiance of a still growing percentage of the Black population.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the Most Important Books 4. Dezember 1999
Malcolm X is truly a powerful, significant, and essential work for all time. Why? Because you are able to witness how a man suffered from the effects of prejudice and his whole disposition was formed from it. You see how a very angry man stays angry at the "white devils" for most of his life. However, the unique aspect of Malcolm X is that he changed his views towards the end with the realization that his religion and own understanding gave him. This book serves as a learning experience, for one learns not only about racism and a mans struggle with it, but how to listen and read with a open mind. Many people get very offended at what Malcolm says and I can relate. However, your purpose as a reader should not be to judge Malcolm, but just listen to what he has to say, and learn from his experience. Knowledge, insight, and power of personal change are all gained from this story. I cannot stress enough the importance of having his autobiography in your memory. A highly recommended read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I'm telling you, read it. 18. Dezember 1998
Before I read this book, I had a negative feeling about Malcolm X. Then I realized I didn't know anything about him. I don't like to pass judgement without being informed, so I decided to read this book. I didn't know what to expect. I read the book with a completely open mind. Anybody reading it would have to do so, or you won't get anything out of it. I now have a better understanding of what would make a black man view white people as "devils." I understand that black pride is not about being anti-white, but about overcoming the overwhelming odds that are stacked up against a Black American. I would recommend this book to anyone. I don't think there's a person in the world who couldn't learn something from it. For me, it was an entirely new viewpoint. I think a lot about race, but from MY perspecitve, as a white teenage girl who exclusively dates black men. That makes me deffensive about black people talking bad about "the white man." But I put down my deffenses and objectively read what turned out to be the most influential book I've ever read. After reading this book, I don't see how anybody could feel anything toward Malcolm X other than a deep admiration and respect.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Most Impactful Book I've Read In a Long Time 9. März 2000
When I was first told by my Ethics teacher (I'm a high school Junior) that our syllabus would include The Autobiography of Malcolm X, I questioned why. Why in a course of ethics, would we study Malcolm X? As we delved into the book, I realized that it was an integral part of our studies. Malcolm's plight was a slap in the face, especially from my point of view. My first reaction to his "rants" on white america, was pure anger, I felt his vast generalizations to be demeaning and insulting, and if it had not be required reading, I would have probably put the book down. I am thankful that I didn't, because it has opened my eyes, and I believe that every person, regardless of religion, race, or creed, needs to experience this book, and examine Malcolm's life as a hustler to a martyr. My views will forever be changed by the words of Alex Haley, and the amazing story of Malcolm X.

Von Ein Kunde
Malcolm X to many people was the epitome of a violent natured, totally corrupted, evil spirit. As early as page one however, we find that this couldn't have been further from the truth. In fact, in the last chapter (1965), Malcolm masterfully articulates the universal truth that seems to shape everyone's life: the fact that circumstance, not unintelligence or inherent evil nature, is the fundamental cause of most of our decisions. Secondly, we see how ultimately unintelligent decisions are made in an intelligent manner. We find that Malcolm was an astute individual whose vision, or lack there of, caused him to whole-heartedly devote most of his mature adult life to an organization he would later regret ever having been a champion of. So, the limit of human intelligence and understanding is revealed poignantly in this life story. What is most inspiring is the integrity with which Malcolm carried himself- unike too many of today's religious "leaders". When he changed, it was for real! Also, in reading this book, it becomes obvious through Malcolm's recounts of history that religion and poilitics are inseperable. That is, if one, after reading this book, still holds to the belief that religion and politics have nothing to do with each other, then he/she understands niether. The theme of subjectivity and self-interest rings loud as a bell. Malcolm, above all, was a sociologist; he understood human behavoir at it's core. He could very well have been a better poitician than JFK and Clinton combined- he was just that brilliant! Pay close attention to his criminal life and all the knowledge he imparts, the LBJ/Goldwater comparison, the Nation's "jealousy", Hollywood's version of love and relationships, Alex Haley's "up close and personal", and the use and meaning of the word "devil".

4.0 von 5 Sternen This book is a great link to Malcolm X's life 18. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
The Autobiography of Malcolm X provides a very detailed and repetitive description of Malcolm X's life. The book goes in chronological order from the beginning of his life in Michigan to the very end of his life when he is assassinated by fellow Muslims. The beginning of the book is very interesting and holds your attention for many chapters. With detailed descriptions of his childhood as a hick and his teenage years as a hoodlum on the East Coast, I felt like I was with Malcolm when he was growing up. I also had a better understanding for what life was like for black people, of all classes, back then. Not knowing anything about Malcolm X or The Nation of Islam, I certainly learned all about Malcolm X and the Muslim religion. The Muslim religion is described in great detail from when Malcolm is in prison until the end. I feel a lot better about myself now that I know about and understand what another religion believes and how it is run. I think the main theme of this book is self-discovery. Like many other minorities, Malcolm struggled through the whole book to be at peace with who he was. With conflicts within his race he had trouble making peace with white people before making peace with black people. I think the phrase Malcolm X repeatedly uses,"by any means necessary," describes Malcolm's philosophy on life. I think that this is why society thought of him as a violent person because he would do anything to get what he wanted. Although this book did get slow towards the middle with Malcolm repeatedly lecturing on the devil white man, in all I thought it was a good book. It should definitely be read so society truly understands the type of person Malcolm X was, how the Nation of Islam works, and what can be done to help the continuing struggle with racial equality.
