The "Judas" Evanzz refers to is John Ali, whom he. .Lots of information left out of the Autobiography of Malcolm X was in this book, like Malcolm X's wife was a college graduate or that Malcolm's brothers and sisters helped convert him to Islam while he was in prison

The "Judas" Evanzz refers to is John Ali, whom he concludes conspired with the CIA to assassinate his former friend. Friedly points out, however, that the New York City Police Department did a poor job of protecting Malcolm X and has yet to release its files of the case. Both authors clearly show that the CIA and FBI were concerned about Malcolm X's growing power, especially after he and Elijah Muhammad had gone their separate ways. Lots of information left out of the Autobiography of Malcolm X was in this book, like Malcolm X's wife was a college graduate or that Malcolm's brothers and sisters helped convert him to Islam while he was in prison. DEFINITELY worth the read.

No actual plot to kill Malcolm X is ever described. He has uncovered information not included in any other Malcolm X biography, and this factor makes the book worth reading notwithstanding the flaws mentioned above. Ultimately, the book promises more than its title delivers He has uncovered information not included in any other Malcolm X biography, and this factor makes the book worth reading notwithstanding the flaws mentioned above. This is an excellent book on this important subject.

Karl Evanzz does a wonderful job putting together this book. I found out information about the NOI that I was unaware of. For example, the murders that were committed by some of their members even after Malcolm X was assassinated

Although the focus of this text is the plot to kill Malcolm X, it actually is much more: Not only is it a biography of Malcolm X, it also is a summary biography of the Nation of Islam, the sect with which Malcolm was deeply involved with for most of his adult life. However, the title is somewhat misleading because no figure emerges who plays a parallel role to Judas betraying Jesus of Nazareth for 30 pieces of silver. No actual plot to kill Malcolm X is ever described. Ultimately, the book promises more than its title delivers.

Do we need yet another biography of Malcolm X? Yes. As FBI and CIA files become declassified (NYPD files remain unavailable) they provide a treasure trove of additional information which was not available to previous biographers. Nevertheless the book being reviewed is still is a secondary work: the author does not conduct interviews to elicit new information, but rather he gathers and organizes texts from FBI and CIA files, newspaper articles and books written by other authors.

The book is incomplete as a biography because it begins with Malcolm already incarcerated. Fragments of earlier parts of his life are touched upon in the form of flashbacks. The book penultimate chapter is a graphic description of Malcolm’s murder, followed by a concluding chapter in which the author speculates on the meaning of the data he has gathered.

The author concludes — convincingly in my opinion — that multiple agents were responsible for Malcolm’s murder. First is the Nation of Islam which already had shown it would not hesitate to use violence as a tool. Members of the Nation of Islam actually carried out the murder. Second is the FBI and its COINTELPRO programs. Moreover, the FBI had infiltrated the Nation of Islam with both informers and agents provocateurs. These actions would certainly destabilize the organization.

The author also describes how the CIA conspired with the FBI and the NYPD to foster Malcolm’s assassination, providing aid and material support.

The New York City Police Department also bears a share of the blame. Its BOSSI unit, too, had deeply infiltrated the Nation of Islam with informants and agents provocateurs. Regular police officers and their superiors had changed their patrol patterns on the day of Malcolm’s murder so that the venue in which the rally was held had only a single officer assigned to the location where the rally was being held, and all other officers were assigned to positions far away from the rally. As a result, they were able to capture only one of the five of Malcolm’s murderers.

The main problem with this volume is the author’s tendency to stray off into irrelevant topics unrelated to the subject matter of the book. However, for the most part, the subjects he discusses are interesting. The text would have been improved with the help of a strong editor.

The author does an excellent job of describing all of the scheming and conniving that led to Malcolm’s murder. He makes excellent use of the documents released by FBIand CIA. He has uncovered information not included in any other Malcolm X biography, and this factor makes the book worth reading notwithstanding the flaws mentioned above.

This is an excellent book on this important subject. Persons with strong ties to the Nation of Islam hated Malcolm X and murdered him, but this was after the CIA and FBI had played some "dirty tricks" on Malcolm and Elijah Muhammad. The FBI's COINTELPRO was what forced the schism to develop between those two men, which led, inexorably, to Malcolm's murder. The book reads almost like a crime novel; you know he's going to die, but who's going to do it? That part of the book is well worth the cost of buying it and the time to read it, but the history of the NOI, and their beliefs, particularly about "Master Wallace Fard Muhammad," the founder of the group, is an unexpected bonus. This man, who had five aliases just in Detroit, and another one in Los Angeles, was a WHITE man who convinced a bunch of black people that he, too, was black. His real name was "Ford," but now the Black Muslims say that the white guy who was arrested in L.A., for armed robbery, and sent to San Quentin Prison, was a bloody impostor, and not Allah (God) in the flesh, as they claim "Fard" was. Unfortunately, there aren't any pictures in this book. I have a book on my back, metaphorically speaking, but I still like to look at pictures, like the ones in the biography of Elijah Muhammad which show him, along with George Lincoln Rockwell, the head (fuhrer) of the American Nazi Party, with several members of his Storm Troopers, all in Nazi regalia, at a service presided over by Elijah Muhammad in his Chicago Mosque. Hysterical!

A brother like Malcolm X deserves to be honored and respected. We must keep his dream and legend alive. It's hurtful to know so many disgusting acts took place from the hands of my own people. This was a painful truth but it's a necessary truth to know.... Must Read

This is an excellent read for anyone wanting to get a perspective on Malcolm X's death. Most understand how duplicitous the U.S. government was during the 60's and earlier. Karl Evanzz does an excellent job gathering the historical facts surrounding Malcolm's death, which include Key Players that were close to Malcolm (i.e., Elijah Muhammad, John Ali, Louis Farrakhan). The gathered facts also include J Edgar Hoover, Robert Kennedy, and Lyndon Johnson as Key Players in the death of Malcolm X. While Johnson and Kennedy may be minor players, Hoover was definitely the main character who was already pretty familiar with Elijah Muhammad prior to Malcom X's memebership into the Nation of Islam (NOI). Once Hoover sank his teeth into the NOI through informants in key places and feeding misinformation about key NOI people to its own people and the media, Elijah Muhammad and the NOI soon began to disintegrate into an organization feeding on itself for survival. After reading "The Judas Factor...", you too may conclude that removing Malcolm could have been an attempt to preserve the NOI by Elijah Muhammad as well as a plan by Hoover to neutralize the NOI as an organization that will not be politically viable for Blacks within the American Borders nor politically viable for Blacks, Africans, or Asians outside of the American Borders. All-in-all, this book is an excellent read. I would have given it five stars but it did not have any information on what happened to John Ali X. He, being a principle player in the NOI, seems to have disappeared from the scene without a trace.

Of the many books written about the life and assassination of Malcolm X, this one stands out. It chronicles one of the most plausible motives for the heinous act, Brother Malcolm's growing influence on the international stage. There are far too many coincidences regarding the date of his murder and planned international events that was to participate in within days to come. Although his murderers were allegedly Muslims, they were unconscious conspirators to a larger plot. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED reading.
