The Judas factor
On February 21, 1965, Malcolm X was assassinated while addressing supporters in the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem. One of the assassins was caught at the scene but two others escaped. While three Muslims were arrested and tried for his death, legal experts and scholars have raised questions about the guilt of two of them. No more. Based on decades of research, including hundreds of interview s and the examination of over 300,000 pages of declassified FBI and CIA documents, The Judas Factor provides the first in-depth analysis of the role that the intelligence community played in instigating the death of one of the most revered and feared revolutionaries of the 20th century. The Judas Factor: The Life and Death of Malcolm Shabazz details how the political activities of Earl and Louise Little, both Garveyites, shaped the life and destiny of their son, Malcolm, better known as Malcolm X. It exposes how the intelligence community monitored his activities from 1952, the year he left prison, until 1965, the year he was killed. More important, it illustrates that the FBI had full knowledge of the plot to kill him. Evanzz vividly demonstrates the link between Malcolm's proposed UN petition charging the United States with human rights violations of African Americans and his assassination. This autographed, limited edition of The Judas Factor marks the 25th anniversary of its publication as The Judas Factor: The Plot to Kill Malcolm X. It contains five new chapters and complete updates of others, and cover his life in full. In addition to over 200 more pages, it is filled with hundreds of illustrations and photographs.
