Reviews

  • Kehinde Andrews is a crucial voice walking in a proud tradition of Black radical criticism and action

    Akala
  • This book is a provocation. It is not meant to make us comfortable or inspired, but rather to remind us of the hard truth that the West was built on slavery, genocide, and colonialism-the bases of racial capitalism and modern empire. And as Kehinde Andrews argues, we are still living this imperial nightmare, still reaping the consequences of contemporary racialized violence and exploitation. The lesson: no freedom under racism, no future under capitalism, no justice without decolonization.

  • Kehinde is a leader and a teacher who puts the Black Lives Matter movement into its historical and global context and explains persuasively how it could shape our future. If you want to get beyond gestures and slogans and to the truth this is the book to get you there

  • Professor Andrews takes the reader on a journey, and it isn't a comfortable one. I challenge you to pick up this book and read it carefully, once that is done, I am sure the reader will be challenged, in thinking and hopefully actions moving forward.

    Dawn Butler
  • This book is a radical, necessary indictment of the racist structures that produced the current anti-Black world order. Historically rigorous and deeply researched, Kehinde Andrews writes with lucidity about the global tactics of Western imperialism, centuries ago and at present. His clear-eyed analysis insists upon the revolutionary acts of freedom we will need to break out of these systems of violence

  • Skillfully interweaving economics, politics, and history to debunk popular narratives of social progress, this searing takedown hits home

    Publisher's Weekly
  • An uncompromising account of the roots of racism today

    Kimberlé Crenshaw
  • Professor Andrews never misses. And this is a compelling account of European Empires and the cost of their plunder

    Nikesh Shukla
  • Uncompromising and intelligent. Kehinde is taking the conversation deeper and further - exactly where it needs to go.

    Jeffrey Boakye
  • Kehinde Andrews shines a light on the truth of our past and in doing so lights the way forward. Essential reading
