[Jaffe s] views are indeed stimulating and should reopen a discussion of great importance. I cannot but welcome this History of Africa which our comrade Hosea Jaffe offers us.

--Samir Amin, from the foreword"

Hosea Jaffe, an incisive thinker, presents a very readable analysis of African history. His book, which is of major theoretical importance, provides many insights into African nationalist, class and other struggles, past present and future.

--Richard Pankhurst, Royal Asiatic Society"

Hosea Jaffe was a distinguished historian, economist, and radical activist. Born in South Africa in 1921, he was active in early anti-apartheid politics, until he was forced to flee the country in 1960. Over the course of his life he taught at universities throughout Africa and Europe, and authored numerous works on African history, politics and global economics. He died in Italy in 2014.
