Huey P. Newton was a dynamic political activist and social leader during the Black Liberation Movement and the 1960s Counterculture. A founder of the Black Panther Party alongside Bobby Seale and others, Newton contributed to the Party’s Ten-Point Manifesto and ushered in many of its social programs, including its food banks, health services, legal counsels, and newspaper presses. For his outspoken activism, Newton led the life of a political target of white violence, battling the legal system and overarching systems of oppression consistently. In this autobiography, Revolutionary Suicide, Newton recounts his experiences as framed by his political thought. It is a deeply philosophical autobiography, one showcasing his activist principles and intelligence. Scholars place it high among the most important texts of mid-twentieth century activism. The work captures the sentiments and challenges of the more revolutionary voices of the era.

This first edition, first printing is in very good condition. In the original full cloth boards, about-fine with only minor fading and rubbing to edges. Text block near-fine, only faint pencil marks and creases to front endpapers. In the original dust jacket, very good with price clipped, minor rubbing to spine ends, and small closed tear and crease to back flap.

A very good first edition of Huey P. Newton’s Revolutionary Suicide. Scarce.
