About the Author

Reiland Rabaka is professor of African, African American, and Caribbean studies in the Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he also has affiliations with the Women & Gender Studies Program, Humanities Program, Center for Studies of Ethnicity & Race in America (CSERA), and School of Education. He is the author of twelve books, including Africana Critical Theory, Against Epistemic Apartheid, Forms of Fanonism, and The Negritude Movement.


Reiland Rabaka has brought together a comprehensive review of Amilcar Cabral and his intellectual legacy that will be indispensable for researchers and students alike. Contextualising Cabral's ideas and praxis within the framework of those of Frantz Fanon, and Marxist and Africana critical theory, makes this an extraordinary tour de force. -- Firoze Manji, Director, Pan-African Institute
Concepts of Cabralism fills a lacuna in the 21st century black studies archive. It is a book that demands that Amilcar Cabral no longer be a footnote in the scholarship on and about the black radical tradition. Reiland Rabaka clearly and cogently provides a valuable matrix to understand Cabral in relation to other great Africana thinkers. Concepts of Cabralism illustrates that Cabral's ideas are not dead, but of extreme contemporary import. -- P. Khalil Saucier, Rhode Island College
After its detailed examination of the intellectual contexts provided by the Negritude Movement and Frantz Fanon, Concepts of Cabralism dives into a masterful reading of works by the important, but currently overlooked, figure of Amilcar Cabral. It is a must read for scholars of Cabral, the larger Black Radical Tradition, and the even larger field of contemporary Africana thought. A timely contribution to all of these fields. -- Paget Henry, Brown University
