Periodical:Revista internacional de estudos Africanos
Geographic term:Guinea-Bissau
Subjects:political philosophy
national liberation movements
Abstract:Evaluation of the main theoretical dances of Amilcar Cabral's political thought, in the light of available societal data on Guinea-Bissau. The author begins with a biographical summary of Cabral's career and involvement in the National Liberation Movement and PAIGC. He goes on to demonstrate Cabral's belief that the applicability of certain ideological concepts can only be determined by a study of concrete economic, social and cultural realities. The fact that Guinean society lacked a bourgeoisie, was subject to a form of colonialism without usurpation of land and continued to be mainly a subsistence-oriented, peasant economy, necessitated the adaptation of Marxist theory. Cabral stressed the importance of a sector of the petite bougeoisie in assuming responsibility for the revolution in the colonial context. Notes.
