Review
“...this book was well written and researched, and it is definitely a good resource text for students and scholars of Lucophone history and political economy.”–The International Journal of African Historical Studies

Book Description

From the perspective of food production and entitlement, the volume traces the economic history of Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde, beginning with the slave trade, through the colonial and postcolonial periods to democratization and structural adjustment. Using the theory and methodology of political economy, the study argues that the way in which African societies have been integrated into the world market diverted...


Amilcar Cabral: Revolutionary Leadership And People's War
Patrick Chabal

March 31, 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This book, first published in 1983 by Cambridge University Press and now issued for the first time in paperback with a new preface, tells the story of Amilcar Cabral who, as head of PAIGC, Guinea-Bissau’s nationalist movement, became one of Africa’s foremost revolutionary leaders. In less than twenty years of active political life, Cabral led Guinea-Bissau’s nationalists to the most complete political and military success ever achieved by an African political movement against a colonial power. At the time of his death in 1973, months before Guinea-Bissau became independent, his influence extended well beyond the Lusophone world and Africa. Friends and foes alike admired his political acumen and skills and saw in him a potential leader of a non-aligned movement. His writings have shown him to be a...

December 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Trends towards 'informalization' are looming large in the world today. African cities have long been characterized by the presence of an 'informal sector' but are now experiencing new waves of 'informalization'. Policies of liberalization and structural adjustment are both changing the conditions under which urban dwellers make a living and encouraging states to abdicate from responsibilities for popular welfare. In this context, urbanites increasingly rely on informal ways of income earning and of social security provisioning. This book is about processes of 'informalization' in the West African city of Bissau in Guinea-Bissau. It begins with a historical account of the way conditions of informality have evolved through the encounter of locally specific forms of informal relations with colonialism and the socialist...
