Sadly, Afr-Amer don't read as much as they should. Knowledge on a socio-political level is crucial to any subculture, but for ex-slaves, it should be required reading in schools. This book needs a revival.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must read as a source of information for Africans and African descendants in the US and beyond written from a historical perspective that is so seamlessly intertwined with current economic and social issues that you will readily and often find yourself nodding in agreement. It also provides a wake-up call for anyone who doubts the impact and long lasting effects of slavery on both former slave and slaveholder descendants. While a rich resource for academics, it is also a book for the everyman/woman from which to gain insight, knowledge and validation of self while underscoring the perplexing nature of oppression that is little acknowledged in shaping the deliberate and subliminal actions of those on perceived pedestals of power and prestige. "Pawned Sovereignty" is an accurate analysis of past and modern day domestic and international relations and economic subjugation that make a profound case for the debt due to Africa and Africans in America that is long overdue! I often give this book as a gift to family, friends and colleagues.

Format: Paperback
Pawned Sovereignty is a must read for anyone interested in looking beyond the established and time-worn perspectives of American democracy for deeper insight into intra/international affairs. It forces the reader to "think outside the box" in order to gain a deeper understanding of the causes of many of the problems facing the African American community specifically and the greater American community generally. Ezrah Aharone's intelligent analysis of history, current events and recent data can assist the reader in developing practical solutions to long standing problems of poverty, miseducation, and political disenfranchisement
