Overview

One of the leading writers of African intellectual life in the second half of the twentieth century, Harold Cruse first came to international attention in 1967 with the publication of his influential and inflammatory book, The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual. This fiercely opinionated and deeply informed critique of both integrationism and black nationalism established Cruse as a bold new voice on race and resistance in America.

First published in the wake of The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual's success, Rebellion or Revolution? collects reviews and essays Cruse wrote between 1950 and 1966 and contains a number of significant writings not available elsewhere. Now back in print, with a new foreword by Cedric Johnson, this work finally emerges as both an essential document from a crucial moment in African American history and a road map to the origins and evolution of Cruse's critical thought, asserting its importance in today's debates on race in America.
