Abstract:Examines the history of the colonial conquest of a neglected region of Angola from a Marxist perspective. The author examines the effects of slavery and forced labour on the racial attitudes of white settlers and on the formation of the working class. Incipient feudalism, social banditry, mission theocracies and independent peasantries are singled out for analysis as responses to the early contacts with capitalism.
