Abstract:These four papers have been written as a tribute to Amílcar Cabral (1924-1973), the leader of the Partido Africano da Independência da Guiné e Cabo Verde (PAIGC), the liberation movement for Guinea-Bissau, who was shot dead on 20 January, 1973. Following Mike Powell's introduction, Lars Rudebeck looks at Cabral's written work, his views on democracy and organization, and his intellectual methodology. Next, Shubi Ishemo reflects on some aspects of Cabral's thought, in the light of the current crisis in Africa. He proposes that Africa, and indeed the Third World, are not devoid of ideas or the dynamism to rethink and work out solutions to their current problems. Cabral's ideas and political practice are relevant for an understanding of the current situation in Africa. The last contribution is an essay by Basil Davidson, on Cabral's ideas and achievements.
