Long an iconic figure for radicals, Huey Newton is now being discovered by those interested in the history of America's social movements. This new release of a classic collection of his writings and speeches traces the development of Newton's personal and political thinking, as well as the radical changes that took place in the formative years of the Black Panther Party. More than just a historic record, Newton's prescience and foresight make these documents strikingly pertinent today.

To Die for the People is a unique document of the development of Huey Newton's radical philosophy, and the ways in which the Black Panther Party attempted to continue the work begun by the Civil Rights movement.
