About This Item

Waco, Texas: Word Books Publishers, 1978. First edition of Cleaver's autobiography. Octavo, original boards. Boldly signed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Towards Freedom for all God's Children Eldridge Cleaver 2/25/81." Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Dennis Hill. Uncommon signed. How could Eldridge Cleaver, with his background-militant, violent, criminal expect the public to believe that he is now a Christian? Soul on Fire answers the questions that have confronted the public mind ever since this ex-Black Panther returned to America to face trial. In Soul on Fire, Eldridge Cleaver tells of his childhood and young adulthood; the years which shaped him into the man he was to become. Here is the tumult and violence of the 60's-from the viewpoint of one of that decade's most notorious outlaws; a viewpoint that will surprise some and outrage others.
