Description :  <b><b><b>Hailed by Toni Morrison as “required reading,” a bold and personal literary exploration of America’s racial history by “the single best writer on the subject of race in the United States” (<i>The New York Observer</i>)</b><br /><br />#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER | NATIONAL BOOK AWARD WINNER | NAACP IMAGE AWARD WINNER | PULITZER PRIZE FINALIST |&#xa0;<b>NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD FINALIST |&#xa0;NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY <i>The New York Times Book Review • O: The Oprah Magazine • The Washington Post • People • <b><i>Entertainment Weekly •&#xa0;</i></b>Vogue •&#xa0;Los Angeles Times • San Francisco Chronicle • Chicago Tribune • New York • Newsday •&#xa0;Library Journal • Publishers Weekly</i></b><br /></b></b><br />In a profound work that pivots from the biggest questions about American history and ideals to the most intimate concerns of a father for his son, Ta-Nehisi Coates offers a powerful new framework for understanding our nation’s history and current crisis. Americans have built an empire on the idea of “race,” a falsehood that damages us all but falls most heavily on the bodies of black women and men—bodies exploited through slavery and segregation, and, today, threatened, locked up, and murdered out of all proportion. What is it like to inhabit a black body and find a way to live within it? And how can we all honestly reckon with this fraught history and free ourselves from its burden?<br /><br /> <i>Between the World and Me </i>is Ta-Nehisi Coates’s attempt to answer these questions in a letter to his adolescent son. Coates shares with his son—and readers—the story of his awakening to the truth about his place in the world through a series of revelatory experiences, from Howard University to Civil War battlefields, from the South Side of Chicago to Paris, from his childhood home to the living rooms of mothers whose children’s lives were taken as American plunder. Beautifully woven from personal narrative, reimagined history, and fresh, emotionally charged reportage, <i>Between the World and Me </i>clearly illuminates the past, bracingly confronts our present, and offers a transcendent vision for a way forward.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Between the World and Me</i></b><br /><br />“Powerful . . . a searing meditation on what it means to be black in America today.”<b>—Michiko Kakutani, <i>The New York Times</i></b><br /><br /> “Eloquent . . . in the tradition of James Baldwin with echoes of Ralph Ellison’s <i>Invisible Man</i> . . . an autobiography of the black body in America.”<b>—<i>The Boston Globe</i></b><br /><br /> “Brilliant . . . [Coates] is firing on all cylinders.”<b>—<i>The Washington Post</i></b><br /><br /> “Urgent, lyrical, and devastating . . . a new classic of our time.”<b>—<i>Vogue</i></b><br /><br /> “A crucial book during this moment of generational awakening.”<b>—<i>The New Yorker</i></b><br /><br /> “Titanic and timely . . . essential reading.”<b>—<i>Entertainment Weekly</i></b>

2 The Beautiful Struggle

Author : Ta-Nehisi Coates
Genre :  Biographies & Memoirs  Books  Parenting 
Price :  $1.99
Release Date :  2008-05-06
Description :  <b><b>An exceptional father-son story&#xa0;<b>from the National Book Award–winning author of&#xa0;<i>Between&#xa0;the World and Me&#xa0;</i></b>about the reality that tests us, the myths that sustain us, and the love that saves us.</b><br /><br /></b>Paul Coates was an enigmatic god to his sons: a Vietnam vet who rolled with the Black Panthers, an old-school disciplinarian and new-age believer in free love, an autodidact who launched a publishing company in his basement dedicated to telling the true history of African civilization. Most of all, he was a wily tactician whose mission was to carry his sons across the shoals of inner-city adolescence—and through the collapsing civilization of Baltimore in the Age of Crack—and into the safe arms of Howard University, where he worked so his children could attend for free. <br /><br />Among his brood of seven, his main challenges were Ta-Nehisi, spacey and sensitive and almost comically miscalibrated for his environment, and Big Bill, charismatic and all-too-ready for the challenges of the streets. <i>The Beautiful Struggle </i>follows their divergent paths through this turbulent period, and their father’s steadfast efforts—assisted by mothers, teachers, and a body of myths, histories, and rituals conjured from the past to meet the needs of a troubled present—to keep them whole in a world that seemed bent on their destruction. <br /><br />With a remarkable ability to reimagine both the lost world of his father’s generation and the terrors and wonders of his own youth, Coates offers readers a small and beautiful epic about boys trying to become men in black America and beyond. <br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>The Beautiful Struggle</i></b><br /><br />“I grew up in a Maryland that lay years, miles and worlds away from the one whose summers and sorrows Ta-Nehisi Coates evokes in this memoir with such tenderness and science; and the greatest proof of the power of this work is the way that, reading it, I felt that time, distance and barriers of race and class meant nothing. That in telling his story he was telling my own story, for me.<b>—Michael Chabon, bestselling author of&#xa0;<i>The Yiddish Policemen’ s Union</i>&#xa0;and&#xa0;</b><i><b>The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier &amp; Clay</b><br /><br /></i>“Ta-Nehisi Coates is the young James Joyce of the hip hop generation.“<b>—Walter Mosley</b>

Release Date :  2017-10-03
Description :  <b>In these “urgently relevant essays,”* the National Book Award–winning author of <i>Between the World and Me</i> “reflects on race, Barack Obama’s presidency and its jarring aftermath”*—including the election of Donald Trump.<br /><br /><b><b><i>New York Times</i> Bestseller • </b>One of <i>Time</i>’s Top 10 Non-Fiction Books of the Year •&#xa0;One of <i>USA Today</i>’s top 10 books of the year •&#xa0;<b>A&#xa0;<i>New York Times&#xa0;</i>Notable Book</b><br /></b></b><br />“We were eight years in power” was the lament of Reconstruction-era black politicians as the American experiment in multiracial democracy ended with the return of white supremacist rule in the South. In this sweeping collection of new and selected essays, Ta-Nehisi Coates explores the tragic echoes of that history in our own time: the unprecedented election of a black president followed by a vicious backlash that fueled the election of the man Coates argues is America’s “first white president.”<br /><br /> But the story of these present-day eight years is not just about presidential politics. This book also examines the new voices, ideas, and movements for justice that emerged over this period—and the effects of the persistent, haunting shadow of our nation’s old and unreconciled history. Coates powerfully examines the events of the Obama era from his intimate and revealing perspective—the point of view of a young writer who begins the journey in an unemployment office in Harlem and ends it in the Oval Office, interviewing a president.<br /><br /> <i>We Were Eight Years in Power </i>features Coates’s iconic essays first published in <i>The Atlantic,</i> including “Fear of a Black President,” “The Case for Reparations,” and “The Black Family in the Age of Mass Incarceration,” along with eight fresh essays that revisit each year of the Obama administration through Coates’s own experiences, observations, and intellectual development, capped by a bracingly original assessment of the election that fully illuminated the tragedy of the Obama era. <i>We Were Eight Years in Power</i> is a vital account of modern America, from one of the definitive voices of this historic moment.<br /><br />*<i>Kirkus Reviews </i>(starred review)<br /><br /><b>“Essential . . . Coates’s probing essays about race, politics, and history became necessary ballast for this nation’s gravity-defying moment.”—<i>The Boston Globe</i>&#xa0;</b>

En undertrykkelse, der går særligt udover Amerikas egne borgere af afro-amerikansk oprindelse.

Price :  $11.99
Release Date :  2016-05-19
Description :  Tra me e il mondo è una lettera che l’autore scrive al figlio Samori nel giorno del suo quindicesimo compleanno. Coates racconta la storia della sua infanzia nella parte sbagliata di Baltimora, della paura delle strade e delle gang, della scuola, della violenza, della polizia. Vincere questa paura, la paura di perdere il proprio corpo, diventerà lo scopo della sua vita. Per la prima volta la ricostruzione della storia americana riparte da zero; e riparte proprio da Ground Zero – dove ben prima del crollo delle torri gemelle c’era la sede del mercato degli schiavi della città di New York – per arrivare alle continue uccisioni ingiustificate di neri da parte della polizia, una violenza che diventa in questo racconto la storia universale del razzismo. Questo è un libro da cui nessuno uscirà indenne.[BIO AUTORE]Ta-Nehisi Coates è nato a Baltimora nel 1975. Ha cominciato la sua carriera scrivendo per il “Washington City Paper”. Oggi è una delle firme più prestigiose dell’“Atlantic” e collabora con “Time”, “The New York Times Magazine” e “The Washington Post”. Per i suoi articoli ha vinto numerosi premi. Tra me e il mondo si è aggiudicato i più importanti premi letterari americani: il National Book Award, il Genius Grant della MacArthur Foundation e il PEN Literary Award. La Marvel ha scelto Ta-Nehisi Coates per scrivere la storia del primo supereroe nero, Black Panther. “Time” l’ha indicato come una delle 100 persone più importanti del 2016.

16 Mellan världen och mig

Author : Ta-Nehisi Coates
Genre :  Essays  Books  Fiction & Literature 
Price :  $27.99
Release Date :  2016-09-07
Description :  "Språket i Mellan världen och mig är intuitivt, uttrycksfullt och befriande vackert. Och dess undersökning av den svarte mannens faror och förhoppningar är både insiktsfull och avslöjande. Det här är omistlig läsning." Toni Morrison Ta-Nehisi Coates prisbelönade bok är utformad som ett brev till sin son, i vilket han behandlar USA:s historiska och samtida syn på rasskillnader. Det är en konflikt som löpt genom århundradena, en konflikt som gått hand i hand med ett imperiums uppbyggnad. Hur kan en falsk världsbild tillåtas skada svarta kvinnor och män, trots ett enhälligt fördömande av slaveri och segregering? Men varför fortsätter då svarta kvinnor och män att hotas, fängslas och mördas? Hur är det att leva med en svart kropp i USA idag och är att förlika sig med historien det enda sättet att bli fri sina bojor? I sitt personliga brev försöker Ta-Nehisi Coates besvara dessa frågor genom att beskriva sin egen resa och om hur han fann sin plats i världen. Mellan världen och mig belönades med National Book Award med motiveringen: "Det här är ingen enkelspårig skildring av rasism utan en samlad attack på ett system som konsekvent förminskat svarta människor. Genom att väva in historien med den personliga berättelsen har Coates åstadkommit en oumbärlig text för varje fritt tänkande människa."

17 Un conto ancora aperto

Author : Ta-Nehisi Coates
Genre :  Politics & Current Events  Books 
Price :  $4.99
Release Date :  2016-12-20
Description :  Dopo l’acclamato Tra me e il mondo, Ta-Nehisi Coates mette in discussione un altro grande conto che l’America ha in sospeso con la storia: il risarcimento ai neri americani per gli oltre duecento anni di schiavitù, la segregazione e la negazione dei diritti più elementari. Anche dopo l’abolizione formale della schiavitù, gli afroamericani sono stati ostacolati nell’esercizio dei diritti inalienabili di ogni cittadino: al voto, allo studio, al lavoro. Soprattutto, scrive Coates, del diritto alla casa, «il tesserino d’accesso al sacro ordine della classe media americana». Affrancare uno schiavo per poi farne un cittadino a metà equivale a lasciargli le catene addosso, con il benestare di chi dovrebbe tutelarlo. Dalle spietate pratiche discriminatorie del mercato immobiliare alle strane incongruenze del New Deal, Coates presenta il conto all’America. E non è un conto da poco.
