Left of Karl Marx by Carole Boyce Davies

Left of Karl Marx: The Political Life of Black Communist Claudia Jones by Carole Boyce Davies. 2008 Duke University Press, paperback edition, 311 pages. Jones was a "pioneering Afro-Caribbean radical intellectual, dedicated communist, and feminist," who was exiled to the UK in 1955 after a stint in federal prison. Here Boyce brings her biography to life.
