    E.U Essien Udom s book is a pioneering study of the Nation of Islam published in 1962 The author is overall sympathetic and, though he appears hostile at times, is fairly critical without belaboring the point Essien Udom had exclusive access to the Nation s members, including at times the leader or messenger Elijah Muhammad, which gave the author particular insight into the general and day to day ongoings of the origination One interesting moment was when a Mr Dawud s was waging a campaign against Muhammad and the Nation The author was in the presence of Muhammad the day the article White man is God for cult of Islam was published Muhammad and the Nation responded by buying up the newspaper and publicly burning it.I personally was looking for a general history of the Nation and specifically for information regarding Malcolm X s early participation in the Nation As a general introduction to the Nation its structure, belief system politically and religiously, finances, and ideology, etc this is an excellent book It is also appealing given the authors attempt to engage with the general membership and not just Muahmmad and the leadership In terms of Malcolm X, he is mentioned, but there is no extensive discussion of his role.
