Extracting Profit: Imperialism, Neoliberalism, and the New Scramble for Africa


Manufacturer: Haymarket Books

Product Information

'A piercing historical explanation of poverty and inequality in African societies today and the social impact of resource-driven growth, Extracting Profit explains why Africa, in the first decade and a half of the twenty-first century, has undergone an economic boom alongside militarization from Somalia to the Sahel. Yet the exploitation of the "new scramble" has not gone unchallenged. With accounts of platinum workers' struggles in South Africa, Nigerian labor organizing, and pro-democracy upheavals in Burkina Faso, Extracting Profit offers several narratives of grassroots organizing and protest, pointing to the potential for resistance to global capital and for fundamental change, in Africa and beyond.'

Lee Wengraf. Haymarket Books, 2018.
