Dr. West's critique and analysis was then and is now essential reading to anyone genuinely trying to comprehend not just race relations but a comprehensive understanding of social dynamics in the United States.
This book explained the motivations at work that effectively Predicted the disastrous Clinton, Obama and now Trump eras from the perspective of race, gender, and economic justice.
It's impressive how well a text written a quarter century ago, not only holds up to the test of time, but holds so much desperately needed clarity for these times.

This book simply changed my life when I first read it about 18 years ago and I happily bought this audiobook. I guess my only gripe with this 25th anniversary edition's audiobook is the speaking tone the author, Cornel West, uses through the book. Anyone familiar with Dr. West's traditional fiery, passionnate speaking style will be quite shocked to hear him almost boringly browse through his own text almost as if he did not want to do it or if he was forced into reading it a certain way to please the average audiobook's audience. It's actually quite surprising and it takes away from the power of the text in ly opinion. I would go as far as to suggest a new recording of this otherwise groundbreaking work also with better sound quality.
