The Fln in Algeria: Party Development in a Revolutionary Society

By Jackson, Henry F

Westport, Connecticut, U.S.A.: Greenwood Pub Group, 1977. In Fine condition in blue cloth Hardcover with silver lettering. Jackson's thesis is that the FLN's decline was due largely to the failure of its leaders to develop an enduring political ideology.... This study presents useful background to an important aspect of a national liberation struggle which was to be imitated (by accident and by design) elsewhere.”This copy INSCRIBED ( with a very personal and political inscription) to noted civil rights leader WYATT TEE WALKER, who enjoys a well established record as pastor/theologian, civil rights leader, and cultural historian. An exhibiting artist as well as a composer of sacred music, Jesse Jackson has called him "Harlem's Renaissance Man" because of his multiple gifts and varied careers. Widely traveled, he is regarded internationally as a human rights activist. Wyatt was the first African-American to meet with Chairman Yasir Arafat since the demilitarization of the Gaza Strip and Jericho, both occurrences underscoring his involvement as an antiapartheid activist and an advocate for Palestinian self-determination..
