"The Nation Of Islam" Martha F. Lee

This absorbing clearly written study views the Nation of Islam as a millenarian movement that underwent a fateful transformation when its prophecies concerning the end failed. The result was the transformation of the Nation, after death of Elijah Muhammad, into two quite different entities.

The first is the American Muslim Mission...led by Wallace D. Muhammad...The second is reconstituted Nation of Islam under the guidance of the controversial Minister Louis Farrakhan...a timely and convincing account that sheds light on an important era in the history of African-American religion.

Martha F. Lee, assistant professor of political science at the University of Windsor, Ontario, is the author of Earth First! Environmental Apocalypse, also published by Syracuse University Press.
