By Claude Andrew Clegg III. Elijah Muhammed, the founding father of The Nation of Islam and the forbear to Louis Farrahkhan, has emerged as one of the most significan black leaders of this century. Claude Andrew Clegg II examines Muhammad's life from his birth in 1897 in Georgia, to his creation of the American Nation of Islam, to his final split with Malcolm X. Through this brilliant biography, we are finally able to understand the origins of Islam and black nationalism that has helped form the consciousness of African-American society for the last half-century. St. Martin's Griffin (1998), English, Paperback: 400 pages.

Claude Andrew Clegg III is a professor of history at North Carolina A&T State University. He lives in North Carolina.

"I can think of no twentieth-century leader with anything like the impact of Elijah Muhammad, whose life has been so profoundly unexamined. Clegg] has brought Muhammad to light in a fluidly written biography rich with information, analysis, and suspense."--Jill Nelson, author of "Straight, No Chaser: How I Became a Grown-Up Black Woman," in "The New York Times Book Review"

"If Elijah Muhammad . . . had sought someone to write his story in a fair, unflinching manner, he couldn't have made a better choice than Claude Andrew Clegg III."--William R. Macklin, "The Philadelphia Inquirer"

"Will the true Elijah Muhammad please step forth? That is the essence of this] carefully excavated biography of the late Muslim leader, crafted with dispassionate skill by historian Claude Clegg...Professor Clegg comes away with a palpable find--an Elijah you can touch, and perhaps even understand."--C. Eric Lincoln, author of "The Black Muslims in America"
