About the book

Texts selected by the PAIGC (Partido Africano da Independência da Guiné e Cabo Verde / African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde)

Translated by Michael Wolfers, and foreword by Carlos Lopes

Amílcar Cabral, born in 1921 in Guinea- Bissau, had his early education in Guinea and persued his university studies in Portugal. Cabral found himself active in the nationalist struggle, a political context that enabled him to reflect on several aspects of the armed struggle. He developed his understanding and theories of the national liberation struggle in the political context of militant nationalism; he fought as he wrote incisively about that struggle, and passionately struggled as he wrote. This dialectical experience enriched his theoretical understanding of the aims, goals, strategies and ideologies that informed the nature of political involvement in the movement for national liberation.
