Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615178723, Paperback)Undercurrents, written 31 years ago, can, at this point in time, serve as a three-way mirror reflecting hindsight, insight, and foresight. History repeats itself, over and over again, as observed by noted historian and scholar Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. in his analysis of 30 year cycles and patterns of socio-political events. Today, challenges from our past remain unresolved. * From Gitology: ...For those under the impression Arabs are primarily responsible for energy problems, both at home and abroad, examination of the economic policies of the power elite in this country would be worthwhile. Until this is done, one cannot understand the significance nor realize the importance between reading newsworthy headlines and studying the financial pages of the same newspaper. From Slaughterhouse 8: ...you will find the faculty of Frost School teaches a reality you cannot receive anywhere else...you will learn how and what to read and write. You will be taught limited skills in how to add subtract, multiply, and divide, so you can enjoy the value of money. You will be taught ...how to strive for mediocrity, because in many ways, that is one thing here at Frost we do best. From The Master Machine: ...Dear Mr.Knettworks, just wanted to say ...we been staring at you everyday and night for thirty years and we ain't sick of you yet...Reading books and newspapers is so boring and takes so long, especially when you can't read...We can relax in our living room, let you tell us about murders and madness all over the world, and turn you off whenever we get ready. My wife Adele says she never has to think when the TV's on. Come to think of it, me neither. Say, you do that on purpose?...* Within nine short stories and only 48 pages, Undercurrents raises issues associated with the African-American experience. Terror at the Zoo, Gitology,The Master Machine, and Slaughterhouse 8* are stories you will enjoy. You will remember interesting characters such as Minotaur, Dr. Dheade, and The Street Corner Theoretician. Finally, preparing our children for the future is a challenging responsibility for parents and adults. This book remains dedicated to the power potential within African-Americans.
