  • How Europe Underdeveloped Africa By Walter Rodney—50 Years On

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In order to mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of How Europe Underdeveloped Africa (HEUA) by the Guyanese historian Walter Rodney, the editors of AEH have decided to commission a series of short essays by scholars to consider the genesis, legacy, and ongoing relevance of Rodney’s book.To us, this seemed important for a number of reasons. First, there is the tragic nature of Rodney’s life. Born in Georgetown, Guyana in 1942, he published the book in 1972, when he was teaching at the University of Dar-es-Salaam. The book was published by the Tanzania Publishing House in association with Bogle Louverture publishers in London. Rodney published HEUA in a context of independence for several African countries ...

  • Dar es Salaam at the Time of Walter Rodney

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: From the 1960s up to the mid-1970s, Dar es Salaam was one of the intellectual and revolutionary capitals of the world. The University of Dar es Salaam (Dar) reflected almost perfectly President Nyerere’s meaning of a university, as “. . . a place where people’s minds are trained for clear thinking, for independent thinking, for analysis and problem-solving at the highest level.”1 It was a youthful and vibrant university that attracted western and other academics from Eastern European, Asian, African, and Caribbean nations.2 There was no other university in the country, 70 years after German and British colonialism. The new university was a product of a fundraising campaign by Mwalimu Nyerere, President of the ... Read More

  • The Caribbean Origins of How Europe Underdeveloped Africa

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: How Europe Underdeveloped Africa (1972) is a book about African political economy, written in Tanzania, which Walter Rodney aimed as an intervention in African intellectual life at a revolutionary conjuncture. But its roots lie in the Caribbean, in terms of how it addresses the political economy of colonialism, explaining through it the connected construction of local and global North-South inequality under capitalism. We need to pay attention to the impact on Rodney of Caribbean nationalist and Marxist intellectuals of the 1940 to 1960 period, and the c.1970 Caribbean political moment. Particularly significant, but for important contemporary reasons obscured by Rodney himself, was the influence of Eric Williams’s ... Read More

  • Did Rodney Get It Wrong' Europe Underdeveloped Africa but Enslaved
           People Were Not Always Purchased with Rubbish

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: How Europe Underdeveloped Africa by historian Walter Rodney had a significant impact on the scholarship of Africa, the Atlantic slave trade, and colonialism. Rodney’s book was not a new endeavor. He had already presented similar results in a previous journal article published in 1966 and explored in depth in his doctoral dissertation defended at the School of Oriental and African Studies in that same year, and then published as a book in 1970.1 Rodney’s book came out in the aftermath of the independence of most African countries at the summit of the Cold War era, during the decline of the Black Power movement, and in the years following the assassination of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. in the United States. ...

  • The Imperative of Decolonization from a Socioeconomic Perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: “Since the rise of capitalism, Africa was forced to provide elements of solutions to the problems faced by capitalist countries.”“We must bury imperialism in Africa or perish.”Despite the celebration of Africa and rising euphoria with double-digit growth of the economies of some African countries in service and extractive sectors, poverty among African peoples has increased overall. Today, Africa is engulfed in a series of crises, conflicts, and wars. Continued underdevelopment can be seen in the challenges of the health, education, and economic sectors. Since independence, a neocolonial relationship ensued that continued the underlining underdevelopment of Africa, thus, Walter Rodney’s How Europe Underdeveloped ... Read More

  • Walter Rodney’s Language for Black Liberation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: One way to understand the continued importance of Walter Rodney’s 1972 How Europe Underdeveloped Africa is to place it in the context of his other writings from the same period. The years between 1966 and 1974 were some of Rodney’s most productive and formative. After completing his doctoral degree in London in 1966, he began teaching in Tanzania at the new University of Dar es Salaam where he participated in an academic experiment to build a university for post-revolutionary African society. After a year in Dar es Salaam, Rodney returned to Jamaica to take up a post in the University of the West Indies. In 1968, after attending the Congress of Black Writers in Montreal, he was barred by the Jamaican government ... Read More

  • Slave Trade and African Underdevelopment: Walter Rodney’s
           Perspective, 50 Years Later

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Walter Rodney’s How Europe Underdeveloped Africa was first published in 1972, while he was a senior lecturer at the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, a center that brought together black intellectuals. He received his PhD in African History from the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London in 1966, and his thesis on the Upper Guinea Coast was published in 1970.1 As Annita Mountoute has noted, Rodney’s scholarship was shaped by African-American and Caribbean intellectuals such as W. E. B. Du Bois, C. L. R. James, and Eric Williams, and these influences were critical in the arguments developed throughout his next book, published two years later.2 It rapidly became popular among ... Read More

  • Revisiting: Walter Rodney, How Europe Underdeveloped Africa (1972; 1982)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Walter Rodney framed How Europe Underdeveloped Africa as a global view of the African continent before and during colonial rule up to 1960. As he explains in the preface, his original intention was to understand underdevelopment, but while writing his analysis he came to the conclusion that development in Africa could only be achieved by a “radical break” from the international capitalist system.1 The ending of colonial rule was itself a major event. 1960 was designated the “Year of Africa” by the United Nations, commemorating the independence gained by 17 former African colonies. Aimé Césaire’s Discours sur le colonialisme, his own indictment of colonization, was published in 1955 and translated into English in ... Read More

  • Walter Rodney’s How Europe Underdeveloped Africa: Its Relevance to
           Contemporary Issues 50 Years Later

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: How Europe Underdeveloped Africa by Walter Rodney remains as relevant today as when it was first published half a century ago. A quick look at the current state of African nations, the poverty and insecurity, diseases, political instability, and stark underdevelopment crawling in the continent would remove the doubt anyone may entertain regarding my opening statement.1 No doubt, the depressing state of the African continent provides a textbook definition of underdevelopment.2 Nonetheless, the subsisting question is why Africa remains so underdeveloped despite the continent’s enormous resources, a question Rodney posed 50 years ago and which is still being asked today.Rodney stresses the external factor: the linkage ...

  • A Manden Myth in the Akan Forests of Gold

      Abstract: “And that which they vended was always so pure and fine, that to this day the best Gold is called by the Negroes, Acanni Sica, or Acanist’ Gold [Akan gold]”1The nexus of Akan societies and the communities of the West African savanna and Sahel was the forest-savanna ecotone, or that broad middle Volta basin encompassing the northern portions of the semi-deciduous forest and southern zones of the savanna woodlands. Besides the Bɔno, an Akan society on the northwestern forest fringe, scholars do not know which savanna merchants visited or settled the major Akan gold-trading terminus of Bɛo-Nsokɔ and the surrounding middle Volta basin environs. On the northwestern edge of the forest, Bɛo-Nsokɔ is also known in the ... Read More

  • Cocoa, Credit, and Agro-Capitalism: John Holt & Co. in Spanish
           Fernando Po, ca. 1890s–1914

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 1902, the Liverpool merchant John Holt wrote to his Barcelona cocoa broker, Fernando Huelín, to discuss Huelín’s struggles with recovering a debt from the beleaguered Fernando Po planter Francisco Romera. Holt, whose own account with Romera had “largely been given to him because of his position as a large planter, and his association with your firm,” told Huelín that he was eager to assist him and could assume control over Romera’s cocoa production. John Holt & Co., he told Huelín, would “give whatever assistance may be possible in the way of superintending the work of the plantation in the same manner as it does in its own plantations on the other side of the island of Fernando Po, where we have our own ...

  • Le Commerce entre Africains et Européens dans le Golfe de Guinée au XIXE
           siècle à travers les écrits de G. Nohmant

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Au début des années 1990, les résultats de recherches sur le monde des affaires en Afrique présentent des opinions contradictoires et divergentes sur les aptitudes des acteurs du commerce africain. Les uns nient le dynamisme ou tout esprit d’entreprise aux acteurs économiques africains du fait, soit du développement du capitalisme industriel et financier au XIXe siècle et de la colonisation au XXe siècle, soit de l’inadaptation des marchands africains aux méthodes qu’imposent les maisons de commerce européen depuis la deuxième moitié du XIXe siècle.1 D’autres réfutent ces allégations en mettant en avant les expériences de groupes de marchands spécialisés.2 S’appuyant sur le commerce du cola pratiqué par les Hausa ...
