I don't know if I just really had trouble finding the time for this book but it took me much longer to finish than any other book I've recently read And I wanted to really like it but there were just too many places where it lagged or bogged down on statistical data I realize it's important to back up your thesis with some hard numbers when you can but I felt it was a little excessive in some places Like several consecutive paragraphs of just straight statistics Most of which could have been left to the 30 pages of tables in the back of the book Still it was a good read If it's a subject you're interested in then you'll most likely enjoy it I definitely learned some things I didn't know or hadn't realized about black history racism and even sexism It would be nice to have read How Europe Underdeveloped Africa as a point of comparison but unfortunately I haven't gotten to that yet I recommend the updated edition because of the Critical Reassessment by the author He addresses the ways in which he may have been wrong at the time but also the ways in which much of it is still an accurate evaluation

How Capitalism Underdeveloped Black America Problems in Race Political Economy and SocietyE forces that remain Michael Eric Dyson author of I May Not Get Therewith You The True Martin Luther King JrFor those of us who came of political age in the 1980s Manning Marable's How Capitalism Underdeveloped Black America was one of our bibles Published during the cold winter of Reaganism he introduced a new generation of Black activiststhinkers to class and gender struggles within Black communities the political economy of incarceration the limitations of Black capitalism and the nearly forgotten vision of what a socialist future might look like Two decades later Marable's urgent and hopeful voice is as relevant as ever Robin DG Kelley author of Yo' Mama's DisFunktiona. This might be the most thoroughly tragic book I've read as well as being uite damning of our current system Looking at not just the oppression of lower class blacks by upper class whites but how the realities black people can find themselves in have people turning on one another in similar situations most notably along gender lines but also of note is the extreme hatred that is stoked between white and black people in the lower socio economic levels; people who are experiencing similar difficulties as to their positions and helplessness in society turning on one another and blaming each other because the true culprits felt out of reachIn part owing to the intense tragedy this book lays out; in part because of the direct assault this book has waged on some of my deeper idiologies; and in part because of the necessary details laid out herein this was an incredibly challenging book to read I did not enjoy it I had to trudge through small sections at a time in order to allow myself a chance to process the successive blows against my psyche There was so much numerical support in the form of statistics surveys records and just truckloads of data that it was uite simply a cumbersome read; like a school textbook than anything else And while it almost feels like I'm complaining about this book and all the work that Marable put into it that is not the case; this is merely a warning for those not up to the challenge His portrayal of the tragedy while inundated in dry data is powerful clear and moving The assult on my preconceptions of the unassailability of capitalism while difficult to hear is necessary; there can be no ideas that go unuestioned the fact that I've been harboring these all of my adult life is troubling; that Marable was able to construct such a strong argument as to allow me to remove my firmly buried head from the sand is almost unbelievable The drudgery of all the data was an absolute necessity for a book of this kind; if he had not so exhaustively supported every claim no one would be forced to take them seriously so while it made for slow going this is the sort of book that the topic demands All this to say this is a vitally important book to read but a word of caution if you hold capitalism with a religious fervor that imagions offense with every uestion of it you will have difficulty actually engaging your brain in the topics being considered This is not to say you must accept a socialistic alternative as gospel truth but that in order to properly engage this book you must allow yourself to engage with uestions to foundational preconceptions and hopefully come to a better informed worldview than you began with
