Description

The classic work of political, economic, and historical analysis, powerfully introduced by Angela Davis.

In his short life, the Guyanese intellectual Walter Rodney emerged as one of the leading thinkers and activists of the anticolonial revolution, leading movements in North America, South America, the African continent, and the Caribbean. In each locale, Rodney found himself a lightning rod for working class Black Power. His deportation catalyzed 20th-century Jamaica's most significant rebellion, the 1968 Rodney riots, and his scholarship trained a generation how to think politics at an international scale. In 1980, shortly after founding of the Working People's Alliance in Guyana, the 38-year-old Rodney would be assassinated.

In his magnum opus, How Europe Underdeveloped Africa, Rodney incisively argues that grasping "the great divergence" between the West and the rest can only be explained as the exploitation of the latter by the former. This meticulously researched analysis of the abiding repercussions of European colonialism on the continent of Africa has not only informed decades of scholarship and activism, it remains an indispensable study for grasping global inequality today.

A Superb must read for everyone

Loved this book. At times it was difficult to follow due to unfamiliarity with historical African states and tribes. but you will walk away with a thorough understanding of how Europe underdeveloped Africa both locally and abroad.

It's a must for any self respecting black people

It goes through the history and reasons for black people's modern issues and African poverty. It also gives solutions.

Worth listening to thrice...

Walter Rodney put in the work. This book goes to great lengths to elucidate the amount of deception that has been heaped on the African people and the continent itself. The deeper one understands the history, the easier it is to see how the situation at hand came to be.

Decolonize yourself

Well, I realized as I listened to this book that I am really ignorant about all things African. And the incredibly limited "knowledge" I did have was completely screwed by European capitalistic ideology. This book is a necessary read for self work in the time of the revolution.

Upon further review

I first read the book in college and couldn’t understand why this occurred I passed the class but still didn’t have a firm understanding until now. The author is pro communism referring to Marks and that capitalism let Africa down. The spin on communism as a way for Africa to move to developing countries. Since the book was written in 1972, you can judge for your how Africa develop following this book. I will use it for reference only
