DEMOCRACY MATTERS Winning the Fight Against Imperialism

by | Read by Cornel West

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs • Unabridged • © 2004

This audiobook certainly lacks nothing in sincerity, personal style, commitment. However, its obfuscating prose makes Professor West's deeply felt points about America's past, current, and future political struggles much harder to understand than if he emulated one of his idols, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. West's pinched, raspy yet somehow jazzy delivery reminds one of a Spike Lee production--if it were one long close-up of Cornell West's face and discussed only intricate policy points welded to humanistic fervor. While this audiobook makes some excellent points, West would benefit from a good editor to help him deliver his points with more impact. We need a voice like his--if only it were more accessible.
