National Bestseller Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary To compose his stunning documentary film I Am Not Your Negro, acclaimed filmmaker Raoul Peck mined James Baldwin’s published and unpublished oeuvre, selecting passages from his books, essays, letters, notes, and interviews that are every bit as incisive and pertinent now as they have ever been. Weaving these texts together, Peck brilliantly imagines the book that Baldwin never wrote. In his final years, Baldwin had envisioned a book about his three assassinated friends, Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King. His deeply personal notes for the project have never been published before. Peck’s film uses them to jump through time, juxtaposing Baldwin’s private words with his public statements, in a blazing examination of the tragic history of race in America. This edition contains more than 40 black-and-white images from the film.

" Ce que les Blancs doivent faire, c'est essayer de trouver au fond d'eux-mêmes pourquoi, tout d'abord, il leur a été nécessaire d'avoir un "nègre', parce que je ne suis pas un "nègre'. Je ne suis pas un nègre, je suis un homme. Mais si vous pensez que je suis un nègre, ça veut dire qu'il vous en faut un. " James Baldwin. Dans ses dernières années, le grand écrivain américain James Baldwin a commencé la rédaction d'un livre sur l'Amérique à partir des portraits de ses trois amis assassinés, figures de la lutte pour les droits civiques : Medgar Evers, Malcolm X et Martin Luther King Jr. Partant de ce livre inachevé, Raoul Peck a reconstitué la pensée de Baldwin en s'aidant des notes prises par l'écrivain, ses discours et ses lettres. Il en a fait un documentaire – salué dans le monde entier et sélectionné aux Oscars – aujourd'hui devenu un livre, formidable introduction à l'oeuvre de James Baldwin. Un voyage kaléidoscopique qui révèle sa vision tragique, profonde et pleine d'humanité de l'histoire des Noirs aux États-Unis et de l'aveuglement de l'Occident. " Attention, chef-d'oeuvre ! " La Croix (au sujet du film documentaire I Am Not Your Negro)

In an age of Black Lives Matter, James Baldwin's essays on life in Harlem, the protest novel, movies, and African Americans abroad are as powerful today as when they were first written. With documentaries like I Am Not Your Negro bringing renewed interest to Baldwin's life and work, Notes of a Native Son serves as a valuable introduction. Written during the 1940s and early 1950s, when Baldwin was only in his twenties, the essays collected in Notes of a Native Son capture a view of black life and black thought at the dawn of the civil rights movement and as the movement slowly gained strength through the words of one of the most captivating essayists and foremost intellectuals of that era. Writing as an artist, activist, and social critic, Baldwin probes the complex condition of being black in America. With a keen eye, he examines everything from the significance of the protest novel to the motives and circumstances of the many black expatriates of the time, from his home in “The Harlem Ghetto” to a sobering “Journey to Atlanta.” Notes of a Native Son inaugurated Baldwin as one of the leading interpreters of the dramatic social changes erupting in the United States in the twentieth century, and many of his observations have proven almost prophetic. His criticism on topics such as the paternalism of white progressives or on his own friend Richard Wright’s work is pointed and unabashed. He was also one of the few writing on race at the time who addressed the issue with a powerful mixture of outrage at the gross physical and political violence against black citizens and measured understanding of their oppressors, which helped awaken a white audience to the injustices under their noses. Naturally, this combination of brazen criticism and unconventional empathy for white readers won Baldwin as much condemnation as praise. Notes is the book that established Baldwin’s voice as a social critic, and it remains one of his most admired works. The essays collected here create a cohesive sketch of black America and reveal an intimate portrait of Baldwin’s own search for identity as an artist, as a black man, and as an American.

Klasik devir Arap tarihçiliğinin son temsilcilerinden olan Celâleddîn Suyûtî’nin eseri, Hz. Muhammed’in vefatının ardından, Hz. Ebû Bekir’in halife seçilmesiyle birlikte başlayan ve böylelikle İslam tarihinin, özellikle ilk iki yüzyılı boyunca en temel yapı taşlarından birini oluşturan halifelik kurumunu ve halifelerin hayatlarını vakayiname şeklinde ele alır. Başka bir deyişle, kitabın öznesi Hulefâ-i Râşidîn olarak bilinen ilk dört halife -ki bu devir sadece Suyûtî için değil, diğer tüm İslam müverrihleri için de Hz. Muhammed’le birlikte Asr-ı Saadet’tir- bunları takiben Emevîler (661-750), Abbâsîler (750-1258) ve son olarak Memlük hâkimiyetindeki Mısır Abbâsîleri’dir (1261-1517). Böylelikle, eşyanın tabiatı gereği eser bir büyük adamlar tarihi ya da elitler tarihidir; bir saray ve yüksek kültür tarihidir. Bunun yanı sıra, savaşlardan ve önemli fetihlerden, mucize olarak algılanan olaylardan şiirler eşliğinde, duygusal bir dille bahsederken; yenilgi, felaketler ve önemli kimselerin ölümlerinden de yine ağıtlarla bahseder. Anlaşılacağı üzere, Celâleddîn Suyûtî’nin tarihe yaklaşımı olguyu olduğu gibi aktarmaktan öte, duygusal ve coşkuludur. [Ötüken Neşriyat]

The electrifying first novel from James Baldwin, whose life and words are immortalized in the Oscar-nominated film I Am Not Your Negro 'I had to deal with what hurt me most. I had to deal with my father.' Drawing on James Baldwin's own boyhood in a religious community in 1930s Harlem, his first novel tells the story of young Johnny Grimes. Johnny is destined to become a preacher like his father, Gabriel, at the Temple of the Fire Baptized, where the church swells with song and it is as if 'the Holy Ghost were riding on the air'. But he feels only scalding hatred for Gabriel, whose fear and fanaticism lead him to abuse his family. Johnny vows that, for him, things will be different. This blazing tale is full of passion and guilt, of secret sinners and prayers singing on the wind. 'A beautiful, enduring, spirtual song of a novel' Andrew O'Hagan 'With vivid imagery, with lavish attention to details, Mr. Baldwin has told his feverish story' The New York Times

The landmark work on race in America from James Baldwin, whose life and words are immortalized in the Oscar-nominated film I Am Not Your Negro 'We, the black and the white, deeply need each other here if we are really to become a nation' James Baldwin's impassioned plea to 'end the racial nightmare' in America was a bestseller when it appeared in 1963, galvanising a nation and giving voice to the emerging civil rights movement. Told in the form of two intensely personal 'letters', The Fire Next Time is at once a powerful evocation of Baldwin's early life in Harlem and an excoriating condemnation of the terrible legacy of racial injustice. 'Sermon, ultimatum, confession, deposition, testament, and chronicle ... all presented in searing, brilliant prose' The New York Times Book Review 'Baldwin writes with great passion ... it reeks of truth, as the ghettoes of New York and London, Chicago and Manchester reek of our hypocrisy' Sunday Times 'The great poet-prophet of the civil rights movement ... his seminal work' Guardian

The Cross of Redemption is a revelation by an American literary master: a gathering of essays, articles, polemics, reviews, and interviews that have never before appeared in book form. James Baldwin was one of the most brilliant and provocative literary figures of the past century, renowned for his fierce engagement with issues haunting our common history. In The Cross of Redemption we have Baldwin discoursing on, among other subjects, the possibility of an African-American president and what it might mean; the hypocrisy of American religious fundamentalism; the black church in America; the trials and tribulations of black nationalism; anti-Semitism; the blues and boxing; Russian literary masters; and the role of the writer in our society. Prophetic and bracing, The Cross of Redemption is a welcome and important addition to the works of a cosmopolitan and canonical American writer who still has much to teach us about race, democracy, and personal and national identity. As Michael Ondaatje has remarked, “If van Gogh was our nineteenth-century artist-saint, Baldwin [was] our twentieth-century one.” From the Hardcover edition.

Tom Amca’nın Kulübesi hem dünya edebiyatının klasiklerinden biridir, hem de yarattığı toplumsal ve siyasi fırtınalarla ABD tarihine damgasını vurmuş bir romandır. Amerikan toplumunun kölelik konusundaki utanç verici tutumunu acımasızca yargılayan ve siyahların yaşadıkları acıları ayrıntılarıyla gözler önüne seren yapıt 1852’de yayımlandığında büyük tepki almıştı. Amerika’da kölelik kurumunun kaldırılmasında büyük rolü olduğu söylenen bu kitap köleliğin korkunçluğunu, ahlaki ve dini açıdan yanlışlığını, özgürlüğü elinden alınmış insanın çaresizliğini dile getirir. Yazıldığı dönemin koşulları içinde değerlendirilmesi gereken romanda yazar, köleliği Beyazların sorunu olarak ele almış, kölelerin çektiklerini ön planda tutmuş, Tom Amca başta olmak üzere bütün zencileri ahlaklı, yumuşak huylu, inançla donatılmış kişiler olarak yansıtmıştır.

Grace Lively, once known for her beauty and charm, has been forever changed by the events of the past two years. The Great War has already taken her father, her sweetheart, perhaps her brother, and now—the great plantation she swore she would never return to until she was its rightful heir. But as an irresistible force leads her back to Lively in 1867, Grace soon realizes that her nightmare is far from over. After Grace marries Porter Jackson out of convenience not love, she tries to make him happy and find contentment in her own life. But when her former sweetheart’s best friend returns to Lively, Grace quickly falls in love with him—just as her husband is murdered. After a trail of clues leads the sheriff to suspect Grace is responsible for Porter’s death, she escapes Charleston on a railroad car without any idea she has just become a victim of a cruel lease system that is the primary penal caretaker for convicts. Now as she battles to stay alive, Grace is unaware that love awaits her—this time within the arms of a handsome Yankee officer. From the Dust of Death is the historical tale of one woman’s attempt to survive seemingly insurmountable challenges during the chaos of the post-Civil War South.
