What People are Saying About This

George Lamming

Walter Rodney had achieved, at an early age, the special distinction of being a permanent part of a unique tradition of intellectual leadership among Africans and people of African descent in the Americas. He belongs to the same order of importance as Marcus Garvey and W.E.B. Dubois, George Padmore and C.L.R. James... Throughout this work, the reader is made to feel that his academic authority is always fused and humanized by a sense of personal involvement with the matters in hand.
