You Don't Play With Revolution: The Montreal Lectures of C.L.R. James
by CLR James Author
As the author of not only the seminal work on the Haitian Revolution, The Black Jacobins, but also the finest book ever written about sport, Beyond a Boundary, C.L.R. James is a legend to both critical theorists and cricketers. He's like the Afro-Trinidadian George Orwell. You Don’t Play With Revolution collects seven never-before-published lectures delivered during his stay in Montréal in 1967-1968. Ranging in topic from Marx and Lenin to Shakespeare and Rousseau to Caribbean history and the Haitian Revolution, these lectures demonstrate the staggering breadth and clarity of James’ knowledge and interest.
