Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention - Manning Marable What an excellent book.

Marable begins with the premise that The Autobiography is the product of both Malcolm's evasions and Haley's biases. He then goes about attempting to set the record straight in the most well-documented way possible. He compiles many original source documents and interviews in order to present as accurate a picture of Malcolm as possible. There are still many, many FBI files that haven't been released yet, so there are more corrections and facts that will be available at some point in the future. But for now, this seems extremely comprehensive.

This is one I'll add to my permanent library.
