ABOUT THE BOOK:
Walter Rodney was a scholar, working class militant, and revolutionary from Guyana. Strongly influenced by Marxist ideas, he remains central to radical Pan- Africanist thought for large numbers of activists’ today. Rodney lived through the failed—though immensely hopeful—socialist experiments in the 1960s and 1970s, in Tanzania and elsewhere.
The first full-length study of Rodney’s life, this book is an essential introduction to Rodney’s work.
“This is a splendid narrative of Walter Rodney’s legendary life and work across three continents. Leo Zeilig’s singular achievement is to have brilliantly located Rodney, the Black Power Marxist, at the intersection of the politics of radical nationalism and visionary socialism that suffused the pan-African world in the 60s and 70s. An unforgettable read.’’
Issa Shivji, Emeritus Professor, University of Dar es Salaam
