'This book by a wide range of committed scholars, including, crucially, a significant number of African scholars, is a necessary and illuminating intervention. The Sankara that emerges here is more than "Africa's Che Guevara," a man whose ideas and politics are "rich with a thousand nuances" that distinguish them from other forms of Marxism and Pan-Africanism. Sankara comes alive in all his complexity.'--Sean Jacobs, Associate Professor of International Affairs at The New School and Founder and Editor, Africa is Country
