In this study, the author takes us from his early immersion in the New York scene through the most dynamic period in the life of this controversial figure.

Pressestimmen"Detail by detail, stage by stage, he pulls the revolutionary suit off Jones with superb analysis and high style...This book should be read by students of black studies across this nation." -- New York Daily News "Watts applies scalpel-like precision to his pursuit of the intellectual journey of Baraka (Leroi Jones), from his beat period in the 1950s through his black nationalist and Marxist positions of the mid-1980s." --Booklist
