Just published by Charles H. Kerr, Listening to Revolt: Selected Writings offers the first major collection of the wide-ranging and revolutionary writings of the late George Rawick, a leading figure in both radical history and Marxist sociology. Rawick was a rarity who influenced many with his contributions to African American history and to the study of white workers. His exciting scholarly and activist writings are generously represented here and put in context by David Roediger's extensive introductory essay on Rawick's life, thought and politics.
"This is the best thing I have read on slavery in general and in particular the United States. [It] will make history." —C.L.R. James, on reading George Rawick’s From Sundown to Sunup
"George Rawick could never accept the satisfied moralism of the Cold War dominant paradigms of the social sciences. He moved from place to place. His many removals were part of his fight for freedom of speech and for intellectual honesty." —Ferruccio Gambino (University of Padua)
"Rawick was a white man who knew where he stood in respect to supremacy, not solely out of sympathy for aggrieved others, but also because he wanted to respect himself." —George Lipsitz (University of California-Santa Barbara)
