Writin' Is Fightin': Thirty-Seven Years of Boxing on Paper

Ishmael Reed, Author Atheneum Books $9.95 (226p) ISBN 978-0-689-70734-6
Reed investigates underlying racist attitudes in politics, the liberal press, TV newscasts and schools, condemns South Africa's Afrikaner regime and argues that Orwell's 1984 could apply to capitalism as well as communism. ``Solid, punchy and provocative, these 19 forceful essays represent a departure from the jazzy, rambling style of Reed's earlier books,'' said PW.
