Reviews

"Everything [Reed] writes is informed by a strong historical memory of a time when there was a 'Movement' and when the distance between rhetoric and conviction was much less than it is now." --Christopher Hitchens, The New York Times Book Review

"Class Notes sparkles with wit and wisdom. Reed's essay on the political and intellectual left since the 1960s is the best analysis of American radicalism in print." --Judith Stein, professor of history, The City University of New York

"Provocative." --Booklist

"Opening Adolph Reed's Class Notes is like boarding a roller coaster. What follows is an opinionated, headspinning loop, brilliantly executed, through the controversies of the recent past and immediate future. I strongly recommend taking the ride." --David Levering Lewis, author of W. E. B. DuBois: Biography of a Race, 1868-1919, winner of the 1994 Pulitzer Prize in Biography

"Brutally frank. . . . This book is definitely not your father's old mobilization rhetoric." --Bill Quigley, professor of law, Loyola University
