One of the world's greatest revolutionary leaders, Amílcar Cabral's long and arduous campaign for the liberation of Portuguese-dominated Africa is explored in this vivid compilation of his most influential speeches and writings.
'We, the Africans of the Portuguese colonies, are fighting Portuguese colonialism to defend the rights of our peoples, to defend the true interests of people everywhere.'
Unity and Struggle is a compelling account of Amílcar Cabral's fight against imperialism, discrimination and injustice, as well as his progressive advocation for religious toleration and gender equality – all of which combined to make him one of Africa's foremost political leaders.

'Figures like Amílcar Cabral... helped us to imagine the horizons of freedom in far broader terms than were available to us through what we now call "civil rights discourse".' Angela Davis
