    walter rodney unleashed

    After a world lit only by fire this is a great segue into what happened to the medieval mind during the reconnaissance years and one continents horrific adventure...Once the euro forces wrestled control of the Mediterranean and the North African waterways from the Arabs and the African moors they used the technology to sail to other continents, in this case Africa in the late 1400's to early 1500's. Secondly control of trading routes were disrupted and eventually taken out of the Africans control. Third once other land was discovered in the western hemisphere free labor was needed to work it¿with control of trading routes, the outsiders were able to impose the type of merchandise to be traded...this massive trade helped the invaders move from a economically and socially backward geo-political system to a full fledged capitalist system , while causing an African brain drain (ages 14 to 30) of massive proportions and depopulation of the highest order. One of conscious mind could only look in horror as boatloads of emaciated children pulled up to ports. These were the poster children for the age of unreason and of course this was with the help of the bamboozled chiefs and the mulatto class. Although there were a few empires that launched kicka@#s offensives, the war was already lost. The Africans failed to see the world picture that the enemy saw. Once trading in slavery commenced on a massive scale , merchants got paid on a billion dollar scale...taking profits and moving those profits to other investments... such as technology, colonial corporations etc¿, and on to the next phase of raw oppression . Under colonialism the medieval men choked off every single surplus of the peasant farmers and raw materials the workers had and mined sending billons home. The combination of slavery and colonialism caused massive famines, disease outbreaks, wars, and indigenous systems were arrested . In other words the model that the medieval population now capitalists brought and originated from, took a mere 500 years to transport elsewhere. Lets be real clear regarding the type of development that was allegedly brought...it was economic. For when the medieval invaders reached their targeted geo area they had already found social development too advance for them to fathom...for unlike the military invading force, this areas people were very healthy and able to feed themselves, had an educational system in place, little to no crime, and political administrations. One could only hope the land that launch intellect and spirituality can muster up forces to alleviate its current situation based on its past. This is an excellent read.

    The beginning of my Afrocentricity.

    I've read this book nearly ten years ago, but I remember the rich content in the acknowledgements discussing the political boundaries and the escalating tribal warfare between different ethnic groups. Walter Rodney does a good job in creating a continental villian in 'Europe' and a self-perpetuating victim in 'Africa'. The author writes about territories, unhonored treaties, the legal theft of diamonds and other natural resources only found in Africa. My favorite subtopic was the Berlin Conference and how Europeans divided African continent up into small pieces all in the name of imperialism. Edmond Davis Historian Pulaski Technical College N. Little Rock, Ark.

    excellent reading for african american students and history majors.l

    You can clearly determine why he was executed. This book is excellent as an account of the travesties of Europeans against thecontinent of Africa. Tremendous insight into the reasons why there is turmoil in the world from africa to the US and to the middle east.

    Let's clear the air...

    First, Rodney was a revolutionary, and like many revolutionaries, he didn't know how to handle his own bombs.<P>Second, the 'underdevelopment' thesis gets weaker and weaker each passing year. It's been nearly 60 years since decolonialization began and 45 years since it's ended. How long is whitey going to be blamed for the fact that Zimbabwe is run by a kleptocrat, unmarried pregnant Nigerian women are sentenced to be stoned to death, three million Africans are in a war with each other, one tribe killed 500,000 of another tribe with sticks and machetes, female 'circumcision' is still widely practiced and 30% of Botswanans have AIDS?<P>Third, if national borders are arbitrary and a hangover from colonialism, how come the affected countries haven't changed them?<P>Fourth, what besides geography connects sub-Saharan Africa from Berber/northern Africa? Shouldn't the book be 'How Europe Underdeveloped Sub-Saharan Africa'?<P>Fifth, if whitey is so bad, why does Rodney ape the language of that whitey known as Marx? You know, looking over the mercifully brief history of the Marxist empire known as the USSR, it looks awfully colonial to me, from Kazakhstan to Georgia to Finland to the Baltic states to Afghanistan. Trying to be anticolonial and Marxist at the same time is like trying to hetero and a Catholic priest at the same time.<P>Finally, any economist that can write with a straight face that we should pattern our economies on East Germany and Albania wins the record for silly idiocy. Not even Krugman would go that far, and that's saying something.
