“How Europe Underdeveloped Africa” is a 1972 book written by Walter Rodney that takes the view that Africa was deliberately exploited and underdeveloped by European colonial regimes.
One of his main arguments throughout the book is that Africa developed Europe at the same rate as Europe underdeveloped Africa.
“How Europe Underdeveloped Africa” is an ambitious masterwork of political economy, detailing the impact of slavery and colonialism on the history of international capitalism.
In this classic book, Rodney makes the unflinching case that African “mal-development” is not a natural feature of geography, but a direct product of imperial extraction from the continent, a practice that continues up into the present.
