"Writings on Pan-Africanism never become dated, for the desire of global Africans for freedom continues burning, sometimes dimming into a flicker, at other times shining bright but never snuffed out, however strong the winds. ... It is my hope that the publication of this book will trigger a debate on New Pan-Africanism in this region"

Prof. Issa Shivji, Emeritus Professor of Public Law at the University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and the founding Julius Nyerere Chair in Pan-African Studies.
