Amazon: A rich and textured monograph, which is destined to become the definitive work in the field. Afua Cooper, James Robinson Johnston Chair in Black Canadian Studies, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia Based on new materials from the archives of the Communist International in Moscow as well as other established sources, Professor Hakim Adi has given us the very first book that explains the history and activities of The International Trade Union Committee of Negro Workers (ITUCNW) in relation to the attainment of black emancipation, the role of such leading figures as George Padmore, the nuanced discussions within the communist movement on Pan Africanism and how to attain liberation from colonial domination. The book abounds with new insights, original reflections, fresh interpretation and new conclusions on what was generally called the Negro Question. Toyin Falola, University Distinguished Teaching Professor and the Frances Higginbothom Nalle Centennial Professor, University of Texas in Austin The struggle by Africans at home and in the Diaspora against the innumerable forms of exploitation and discrimination existing in the 1920s and 1930s was supported by only one major international organisation, the Comintern. This remarkable pan-Africanist approach is fully documented and analysed in Hakim Adi s book that links the struggles in Africa, Europe and the Americas.
