Le Congo: Formation Sociale et Mode de Développement Économique

By Hughes Bertrand

Maspero, 1975, 320 pp.

Congo-Brazzaville's dependency is also the focus of this Marxist account of the country's development from colonial times to the present. The study combines a good deal of statistical information with a hortatory advocacy of an anti-imperialist revolution based on a more effective mobilization of rural and urban proletariats than the country's Left was able to manage in their heyday of the 1960s.
