Synopsis : Essays on labor and race from one of America's most provocative and insightful intellectuals. Adolph Reed, Jr. has earned a national reputation for his nuanced and often searing evaluations of American politics. In the nation's leading liberal journals, Reed advances an unapologetically leftist and antiracist view of American politics and culture. Reed begins his latest volume, Class Notes, with a consideration of the situation of labor in this country. He discusses an array of issues facing working class politics in the United States, from the deleterious effects of the NAFTA on American workers to the crisis surrounding the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. Reed also writes with rare force on the subject of race, discussing the morass of writing about the so-called underclass and looking frankly at relations between black men and women and between blacks and Jews. He also examines the meaning of "race" itself, and the emergence and significance of the notion of "black public intellectuals." Provocative and incisive, this collection is essential reading for anyone interested in the American scene.
Hailed by Publishers Weekly for its ?forceful? and ?bracing opinions on race and politics,? Class Notes is critic Adolph Reed Jr.?s latest blast of clear thinking on matters of race, class, and other American dilemmas. The book begins with a consideration of the theoretical and practical strategies of the U.S. left over the last three decades: Reed argues against the solipsistic approaches of cultural or identity politics, and in favor of class-based political interpretation and action.
Class Notes moves on to tackle race relations, ethnic studies, family values, welfare reform, the so-called underclass, and black public intellectuals in essays called ?head-spinning? and ?brilliantly executed? by David Levering Lewis.
Adolph Reed Jr. has earned a national reputation for his controversial evaluations of American politics. These essays illustrate why people like Katha Pollitt consider Reed ?the smartest person of any race, class, or gender writing on race, class, and gender.?
