A revelation of an American literary master: a gathering of essays, articles, polemics, reviews, and interviews that have never before appeared in book form. In »The Cross of Redemption« Baldwin discourses 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, balck nationalism, anti-Semitism, the blues and boxing, Russian literary masters, and the role of the writer in modern society. Prophetic and bracing, »The Cross of Redemption« is an 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.
