Description - To Shape a New World: Essays on the Political Philosophy of Martin Luther King, Jr. by Tommie Shelby

?Fascinating and instructive?King's philosophy, speaking to us through the written word, may turn out to constitute his most enduring legacy.?
?Annette Gordon-Reed, New York Review of Books

Martin Luther King, Jr., is one of America's most revered figures, yet despite his mythic stature, the significance of his political thought remains underappreciated. In this indispensable reappraisal, leading scholars?including Cornel West, Martha Nussbaum, and Danielle Allen?consider the substance of his lesser known writings on racism, economic inequality, virtue ethics, just-war theory, reparations, voting rights, civil disobedience, and social justice and find in them an array of compelling challenges to some of the most pressing political dilemmas of our time.

?King was not simply a compelling speaker, but a deeply philosophical intellectual?We still have much to learn from him.?
?Quartz

?A compelling work of philosophy, all the more so because it treats King seriously without inoculating him from the kind of critique important to both his theory and practice.?
?Los Angeles Review of Books
