Publisher Description

Abdul Rahman Mohamed Babu (1924-1996) was a politician, scholar and writer, but above all he was a revolutionary who for nearly forty years was at the frontline of struggles against oppression, always seeking to create a progressive politics of the future. He was a Pan Africanist and a Marxist, an anti-imperialist and a fighter for democracy and these categories were not separable in much of his work, because there was for him, an underlying dialectic between theory and active engagement. Analysis was therefore not simply an academic exercise but to help find a way forward. In the contemporary phase of aggressive US imperialism when the ideology of The World Bank and US-led globalization seeks to present itself as the new consensus, when colonialism is being glorified (1) and when Africa is facing new and ever harsher forms of attack and exploitation, his ideas are needed more than ever.
