Former Library book. Shows some signs of wear. First Edition Binding: Hardcover Publisher: Doubleday & Company, Garden City, New York Date published: 1957 Comments by Ralph Dumain Richard Wright's White Man, Listen! had more or less disappeared for decades from the American scene since it originally appeared in the repressive 1950s. However, after thumbing through the book and stumbling upon certain passages at random, I am once again in awe of the centrality of Richard Wright's intellectual role in the 20th century. It appears that Wright is once again the missing link to issues I've been concerned about but have not been generally faced. And I doubt very much that the new introduction by Cedric Robinson does justice to what is most exciting and innovative about the book, i.e. that Wright has set himself up as the mediator by which the non-western world can see itself clear to entering modernity on an equal basis with the West!
