    "More than three decades after its founding, the Black Panther
    Party remains the center of much discussion and debate. Despite
    a recent resurgence of interest in the Party, misconceptions about
    the organization persist largely unchallenged.  This new interest
      provides an important opportunity to dispel myths and to examine
      the organization's hotly debated history, progressive politics,
    intriguing inner workings, and enduring legacy.   The Black Panther
    Party Reconsidered begins this important process with a critical
    and balanced study of the Party's activities and politics. ^"
