Class Struggle In Africa by Kwame Nkrumah

The best way to describe this book is by expanding the title to say Class Struggle Amongst Africans.  Nkrumah places the African struggle in the context of all African people in the tradition of Marcus Garvey. In the last pages Nkrumah says “The African revolutionary struggle is not an isolated one. It not only forms part of the world socialist revolution, but must be seen in the context of the Black Revolution as a whole. In the U.S.A., the Caribbean, and wherever Africans are oppressed, liberation struggles are being fought.” While the write-up on the back of the book is very “objective”, one must remember that the class struggle Nkrumah analyzes is not limited to the African continent but must be extended to the African nation (which includes all Africans in the Diaspora).
