About This Item

New York: Random House, 1972. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. First edition. Introduction by Franz Schurmann. Near fine with the spine ends a touch bumped, a few tiny spots, and small subtle splash mark on the foredge in near fine dust jacket with the rear flap creased, small chip at the bottom of the spine and some wear at the corners. Inscribed by Newton to Franz Schurmann, who wrote the book's introduction: "To Franz all power to the people - from Huey - P.S. Thanks you for all your help - love you."

Schurmann taught at the University of California, Berkeley for nearly 40 years, founded the Berkeley Faculty Peace Committee in 1964 and was an expert on China, according to his *The New York Times* obituary, which called his book *Ideology and Organization in Communist China* (1968), "one of the first significant accounts of life inside Mao's China." In Schurmann's introduction he compares China's revolution to that of the Black Panthers, who evolved from "a political weapon of self-defense by Black People" into a "growing party with a vision reaching out to the entire world ... who want power, identity and respect for their own race," typified by their leader Newton, who is "no longer the Minister of Defense, but the Servant of the People."

An especially nice association in a book seldom found signed.
