    I don't think I'll finish this book. In a way that is unfortunate, as I truly appreciate the alternate history it provides. Important and rare is the book, like this one, which shows the reader another side of history, one not told by European victors or misinformed by their perceptions and myths. Chinweizu takes us through the history of African colonization and resistance. I am leaving the book after 125 pages, however, because it seems to me to be, despite its positive qualities, too informed I don't think I'll finish this book.

Chinweizu takes us through the history of African colonization and resistance. I am leaving the book after 125 pages, however, because it seems to me to be, despite its positive qualities, too informed by materialist and patriarchal worldviews. While the book is a good alternative to the metanarrative of European progress, it falls short for me because I demand a radical reenvisioning of the world. The vision that I require is one where humans and the rest of nature are not opposed. Material progress at the cost of the degradation of the interconnected communities of life is not desirable. This book, as so many, fails to address that concern. I've done enough reading of similar materials to know that this book, excellent though it may be, cannot address my needs.
