CHOICE Review

This collection is a monumental contribution to Malcolm X studies in particular and to Africana studies in general. Following the introductory chapter by the coeditors, who locate the roots of Malcolm in Michigan and link this to his development of race consciousness, identity, and community "across the black world," Abdul Alkalimat theorizes the paradigmatic significance of studying the "agency" of Malcolm X. The book is truly exemplary, as the subtitle states, because it avoids attempting a biography and offers instead the theoretical, methodological, practical, and cultural implications of its iconic subject, emphasizing that the work of Malcolm continues as the work of educating the masses, just as he himself was clearly a product of his own education starting in Michigan. The concluding chapter by editor Edozie on Malcolm X's homecoming to Africa serves as a reminder that the discipline of Africana studies is overdue for globalization, perhaps by adding the missing "a" to the names of the prestigious African studies institutes and centers across Africa and the rest of the world, reflecting Malcolm's "worldview." Summing Up: Essential. All levels/libraries. --Biko Agozino, Virginia Tech
