Summary
A historical explanation of poverty and inequality in African societies today and the social impact of resource-driven growth, Extracting profit explains why Africa has recently undergone an economic boom alongside widespread militarization. This exploitation has not gone unchallenged, however. The book recounts various narratives of grassroots organizing and protest, from platinum workers' struggles in South Africa and Nigerian labor organizing to pro-democracy upheavals in Burkina Faso. It points to the potential for resistance to global capital and for fundamental change, in Africa and beyond.--
