How Europe Underdeveloped Africa
Shehabi presents Walter Rodney’s 1972 book ‘How Europe Underdeveloped Africa’ that describes how Africa was deliberately exploited and underdeveloped by European colonial regimes.
Underdevelopment is not defined by a lack of resources but an uneven and, he argued, unjust distribution of the wealth of those resources. One of Walter Rodney’s main arguments throughout the book is that Africa developed Europe at the same rate as Europe underdeveloped Africa.
