This volume offers the first major collection of the wide-ranging and revolutionary writings of the late George Rawick, a leading figure in both radical history and Marxist sociology. Personal assistant to C.L.R. James, comrade of Marty Glaberman and Selma James, and friend of C. Wright Mills and Michael Harrington, he influenced such leading scholars as Noel Ignatiev, Robin D.G. Kelley, Peter Linebaugh, Rosemary Feurer, Huw Beynon, Margaret Washington, Bruno Cartosio, Enoch Page, George Lipsitz, Nando Fasce, Ferruccio Gambino, Peter Rachleff and John Bracey and organizations like Students for a Democratic Society and the League of Revolutionary Black Workers. Rawick was a rarity who contributed decisively to African American history and to the study of white workers. His exciting scholarly and activist writings are generously represented here and put it context by David Roediger's extensive introductory essay on Rawick's life, thought and politics.

"This is the best thing I have read on slavery in general and in particular in the United States. [It] will make history."—C.L.R. James on reading George Rawick's From Sundown to Sunup
