Mozambique: From Colonialism to Revolution, 1900-1982
by Allen & Barbara Isaacman

Mozambique: From Colonialism to Revolution is an excellent document that summarizes the struggle of Africans in Mozambique against Portuguese colonialism. From a brief history of precolonial life in Mozambique, the coming of Portuguese colonialism, FRELIMO’S (Front for the Liberation of Mozambique) victory over Portuguese colonialism, to the struggle to build a viable economy after centuries of enslavement in the face of neocolonialism, this book is an invaluable document to understanding the true struggles as to why a liberation struggle is waged. While not a definitive book, it does help one to understand the particular barbarism of Lusophone colonialism.
