This book advances Frantz Fanon's two-revolutionary theory of decolonization and analyzes the changes in law during the pre-colonial, colonial, and post-colonial eras. The author argues that Fanon's model of colonial oppression and its categories of maintenance needs are predictive of the evolution from pre-colonial to post-colonial society in Africa.
