Thomas Hodgkin: Wandering Scholar (Hardcover)

Thomas Hodgkin: Wandering Scholar By Michael Wolfers Cover Image


The story of an early pioneer in the field of African Studies is featured in this illuminating biography. In the late 1940s, Thomas Hodgkin set out—through his travels and writings—to overcome the false visions of African history and independence propagated under the colonial agenda, yet his interests were not restricted to Africa. A longtime Marxist shaped by the colonial effects on Palestine and Vietnam, Hodgkin was an unconventional scholar, sent all over the world to witness and document revolution in action.
