If you want to know a detail analysis of Malcolm's post Mecca activities in the U.S. and internationally, I recommend this book. If you appreciate Malcolm as an historic figure, I recommend his autobiography, Malcolm X Speaks, The Judas Factor and this book. This book if filled with information about Malcolm's two organizations the Muslim Mosque Inc, and the Organization of Afro-American unity that sets the standard of recording history about Malcolm's short-lived movement due to his tragic assassination.
