Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? Spanning more than two thousand years of African history, from the African Iron Age to the collapse of colonialism and the beginnings of independence, Hosea Jaffe's magisterial work remains one of the few to do full justice to the continent's complex and diverse past. The great strength of Jaffe's work lies in its unique theoretical perspective, which stresses the distinctive character of Africa's social structures and historical development. Crucially, Jaffe rejects all efforts to impose Eurocentric models of history onto Africa, whether it be liberal notions of 'progress' or Marxist theories of class struggle, arguing instead that the key dynamics underpinning African history are unique to the continent itself, and rooted in conflicts between different modes of production. The work also includes a foreword by the distinguished economist and political theorist Samir Amin, in which he outlines the contribution of Jaffe's work to our understanding of African history and its ongoing post-colonial struggles.

About the Author

This document supplements the material we published in Revolutionary History Vol. It fills gaps in our knowledge of one of the important movements in South Africa, and also it illustrates vividly the importance of collecting systematically the recollections and experiences of participants in struggles and making them available to future generations of workers and scholars. In the near future we will be adding a further collection of documents from the history of Trotskyism in South Africa to this site, which space did not permit us to publish in the journal. In response to this and as one who had been directly and actively involved in the organisation from to , I hope to shed some light on the movement which I believe made a significant imprint on the liberation struggle. This article will attempt to trace its origins within the context of both national and international developments at the time and assess the parts played by some of those active in it. I take as my starting point the year with Nazi Germany on the retreat following the decisive battle of Stalingrad.
