HE PRESENT PAMPHLET
is based upon an earlier brochure underthe same title first published in
. Since then, importantchanges in the United States and in the world situation haverendered sections of the old pamphlet inadequate or out of date.In addition, the movement of the Negro people towards unity inthe fight for equal rights and the new progressive movement inthe country have advanced considerably since
.These developments have brought to the fore a number of newproblems and have placed others in a new light. Under thesecircumstances, I thought it best to revise and elaborate a con-siderable portion of the earlier pamphlet, keeping particularly inmind various problems raised in the course of numerous discus-sions during the past few years. The reader will undoubtedlyfind a number of important problems either treated very brieflyor entirely omitted. This is unavoidable in a short pamphlet inwhich the principal emphasis is placed upon the main forces shap-ing the movement for Negro liberation.
