Awolowo argues that Africa needs to adopt a democratic socialism that is based on African values and culture. He also criticizes the neo-colonialism and capitalism that have exploited and underdeveloped Africa

The book was published in 1978 by Macmillan Nigeria Publishers. It has 78 pages and is considered one of the most influential books on African politics and development
