Eqbal Ahmed Papers
Eqbal Ahmed Papers, 1956-1999 (Bulk: 1966-1999)
12 boxes and 4 tubes (15.25 cubic ft.)
Collection number: MG5
Correspondence, notes and writings document the life and thought of Eqbal Ahmad (1932-1999), an eminent Third World scholar. Ahmad's major interest in politics and political theory led him to analyze many of the revolutionary and liberation movements of the modern Third World, while remaining vehemently opposed to war and violence. Also present are records of the Harrisburg 7 conspiracy trial, in which a group of Vietnam War protestors, Ahmad among them, were indicted, and later acquitted, for plotting to kidnap Henry Kissinger. The collection also includes research material collected by Ahmad for his work, and a collection of posters for liberation and revolutionary movements, many from Cuba.
