Review of Manning Marable, How Capitalism Underdeveloped Black America: Problems in Race, Political Economy and Society

West, Cornel

black entrepreneurs, black preachers and black Brahmins. In short, Marable attempts to lay bare the present-day anatomy of black America in a highly detailed manner.
