An old yet startlingly relevant text that studies how European colonialism affects Africa to this day and transformed the economies and political development of both Africa and Europe. Though at times meandering, it is so necessarily to examine the full breadth of colonial plundering and its effects on both Africa and the ‘West’. Rodney also specifically and deliciously refutes many of the inane lines of argument formulated by imperial apologists to put to rest (fifty years ago!) the idea that colonization was of any benefit to Africa.
