Walter Rodney: How Europe Underdeveloped Africa


Lieferzeit: Büchersendung



Verso Books · 365 pages

How Europe Underdeveloped Africa is an ambitious masterwork of political economy, detailing the impact of slavery and colonialism on the history of internatioinal capitalism. In this classic book, Rodney makes the unfliching case that African poverty is not a natural feature of geography or a consequence of culture, but a direct product of imperial extraction from the continent, a practice that continues into the present. Meticulously researched, How Europe Underdeveloped Africa remains an unshakably relevant study of the so-called great divergence between Africa and Europe, just as it remains a prescient resource for grasping the surge in global inequility today.
