Good Ebook C.L.R. James: The Artist As Revolutionary There are few people of the last century who merit the label polymath intellectual activist more than C L R James - he was a Marxist dissident who sparred with Trotsky, lover of cricket, historian, fan of Thackeray, literary critic and journalist whose life (1901-1989) spanned the great events of war and revolution. There are few who, to my mind, can do justice to James's the polymath, but the unclassifiable socialist Paul Buhle is one of them - not only because of his longtime collaboration with James as well as his critial engagement with both James and their mutual contexts as well as his grasp of Caribbean and Marxist politics. As a result this is an excellent intellectual biography of James that even James found 'successful' (according to the blurb). To my mind, few writers other than Buhle have been able to grapple with James's diversity. This is simply superb (and annoyingly out of print).
