- "This collection of essays springs from Depelchin's concern to show that through African histories it is possible to reconnect to all the histories of those who have been disconnected: those of the poor, of Haitis, of Abahlalis. In short the histories of all those who have been railroaded into looking at their own histories through a shattered looking-glass, deliberately and forcefully crushed so as to render the exercise impossible. History could be written in a way that would help break the mould and free it from being implicitly hostage, consciously and unconsciously, to European and US historical intellectual frameworks. Reclaiming African history enables a reconnection to humanity - not just for the sake of Africa, but for the sake of those who did everything to bury African history. These essays were first published in the online newsletter Pambazuka News"--amazon.com
