Post World War II imperialism in Africa: a Marxist perspective
MetadataShow full item record
The evident inadequacy of orthodox models and tools of analysis has, in recent decades, led many social scientists to turn to Marxism for more helpful explanations and solutions for the problems of poverty and oppression in Africa. This is not to say there is complete agreement among these as to the nature and causes of the widespread changes which, over the last quarter of a century, have altered the major features of imperialism in Africa: the ways by which transnational corporations continue to obtain low-cost raw materials, markets for the surplus manufactures, and extract high rates of surplus value from the labors of the more than 300 million people who live there.
