Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 997697373X, Paperback)

A powerful and elegant discussion, which encompasses an examination of dominant theories - political, social, economic, cultural and ideological - on Africa. The author analyses the influence of capitalism on the continent in relation to historical events over centuries. He castigates those who envision Africa solely through the eyes of colonialism. He systematically erodes misconceptions about Africa and the nature of the 'black man', which have assumed historical status.
