Description of the book "Africa in Struggle: National Liberation and Proletarian Revolution":Africa in Struggle deals with Africa's national liberation movements and counter-movements from initial African resistance to European colonial invasion through all the major political upheavals since the second world war. It includes chapters on Algeria, Kenya, the Congo/Zaire, Nigeria, Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Zimbabwe, and South Africa.
Fogel brings a sharp theoretical perspective to the complex and often confusing array of people's revolts, military coups and civil wars that have convulsed much of Africa since 1945. He exposes how new ruling elites in Africa often disguise their class and ethnic oppression of the people with PDF pseudo-liberating slogans drawn from socialist and communist theories. He deals in depth with the theories and practice of Kwame Nkrumah, who took over the colonial state in Ghana from the departing British rulers and tried to reorient it to serve the people and of Amilcar Cabral, who patiently prepared a grassroots revolutionary movement in Guinea-Bissau that, after ten years of armed struggle, broke Portuguese colonial rule.
