Description

Arguing for what he describes as the "weapon of theory", Amilcar Cabral, founder of the African Party for the Independence of Cape Verde and Guinea (PAIGC) and a major figure in the struggle against Portuguese colonial rule in Africa, highlights the pivotal role of culture in national liberation and nation building. This book is the product of a collection of scholars who have come together to interpret and give new meaning to the life and philosophy of Amilcar Cabral. While the focus here in on Cabral and his thoughts, the philosophical lesson is that for any people victimized by oppression, the "weapon of theory" is an alternative to armed conflict.
