Abstract

A situation is rapidly developing in Africa which is strongly reminiscent of the pre-independence era, when the masses were demanding change at any price. - Abdul Mohammed Babu. This is the dominant thesis effectively developed by Babu in his latest work, African Socialism, or Socialist Africa? Twenty-five years of so-called political independence in most of Africa's states have been largely a disaster. The African petty bourgeois leadership in these states, in cooperation with its metropolitan allies, has proved itself incapable of radically improving the living standards of the country's working class and peasantry.
