How Europe Underdeveloped Africa

by: Walter Rodney

Publisher: Verso Books (2018)


Staff Pick by comrade: A

This should be required reading. Rodney, a Guyanese scholar and activist, spent his life working towards the liberation of the colonized, and this is his master work. He was assassinated at a young age, and it is an immense tragedy that we no longer have his voice. Honor Rodney's brilliance with this book.
