More About This Title Africa's Liberation


Julius Kambarage Nyerere, the first president of Tanzania, was a Pan-Africanist and an internationalist, and this book includes contributions from leading commentators—those who worked and fought imperialism alongside Nyerere, members of a younger generation, and Nyerere in his own words. The writings reflect on Nyerere and liberation, the Commonwealth, leadership, economic development, land, human rights, and education. Above all, they are a testament to the growing recognition of the need to rekindle the fires of African socialism to which Nyerere was deeply committed.

“Bringing us a global vision of China's role in Africa in its small number of pages, the book is essential for lovers of contemporary Africa seeking an African perspective.”  —Tania Adam, Centre d'Estudis Africans
