Thank you Walter Rodney. 

I might probably write more this person and his works but for now I just want to say thank you to Walter Rodney for his book, How Europe Underdeveloped Africa. 

It is a magnificent read on historical antecedents to the current economic and political rot in which Africa wallows. The book care explains all the events that occurred from the 10th century and the beginning of feudalism around the world till the end of colonization.

Anyone looking to learn more about how African states existed and flourished before the contact with the European, why the European had superior advantage, slavery, imperialism and everything in between should pick up this book. He doesn’t only underlined European involvement in African Underdevelopment but also the active roles Africans themselves play. There are so many quotables but I’ll just leave a few.
