A national bestseller when it first appeared in 1963, The Fire Next Time galvanized the nation, gave passionate voice to the emerging civil rights movement—and still lights the way to understanding race in America today. "Basically the finest essay I’ve ever read. . . . Baldwin refused to hold anyone’s hand. He was both direct and beautiful all at once. He did not seem to write to convince you. He wrote beyond you.” —Ta-Nehisi Coates At once a powerful evocation of James Baldwin's early life in Harlem and a disturbing examination of the consequences of racial injustice, the book is an intensely personal and provocative document from the iconic author of If Beale Street Could Talk and Go Tell It on the Mountain. It consists of two "letters," written on the occasion of the centennial of the Emancipation Proclamation, that exhort Americans, both black and white, to attack the terrible legacy of racism. Described by The New York Times Book Review as "sermon, ultimatum, confession, deposition, testament, and chronicle...all presented in searing, brilliant prose," The Fire Next Time stands as a classic of literature.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Book Preview: #1 I write to you as a brother and a father. I have carried your father in my arms and on my shoulders, kissed and spanked him, and watched him learn to walk. I do not know if you have known anyone from that far back, but if you have loved anyone that long, you gain a strange perspective on time and human pain. #2 You were born in America, to parents who were not bitter. But your countrymen have caused you to be born under conditions not very far removed from those described by Charles Dickens in the London of more than a hundred years ago. You were born to be loved, and to strengthen you against the loveless world. #3 The limits of your ambition were predetermined as you were born into a society that made clear to you from an early age that you were inferior to white people. You were not expected to achieve excellence, but to make peace with mediocrity.

Since the Mexican government initiated a military offensive against its country’s powerful drug cartels in December 2006, some 50,000 people have perished and the drugs continue to flow. In The Fire Next Door, Ted Galen Carpenter boldly conveys the growing horror overtaking Mexico and makes the case that the only effective strategy for the United States is to abandon its failed drug prohibition policy, thus depriving drug cartels of financial resources.
