Walter Rodney was banned from re-entering Jamaica on October 15, 1968, after attending a Black Writers Conference in Montreal, Canada. As a consequence, his post as lecturer in History at the University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona campus was revoked.

The essays in this book are solid, potent, and very relevant today. They represent the essence of brother Walter's rootical groundation with the masses of Jamaican society, more so, the Rastafarian community, who he dwelled among and taught the importance of knowing African history.

It was due to this close collaboration of Dr. Rodney - one of Caribbean and Africa's brightest sons with Rasta, the most down-pressed of Jamaican society at that time, that led to the Jamaican government to initiate the ban against him.

Dr. Walter Rodney authored many papers and articles in magazines and journals throughout the world, one of his most well known works include "How Europe Underdeveloped Africa."
