Few books have been as influential in understanding African impoverishment as Walter Rodney's classic. Rodney argues that the imperial countries of Europe, subsequently joined by the US, bear major responsibility for impoverishing Africa. They have been joined in this exploitation by agents or unwitting accomplices both in the North and in Africa. This new edition includes additional essays by Rodney and an introduction by the Walter Rodney Foundation, the co-publishers of this officially approved edition, to whom proceeds of the sales of this book will go.
