Has anyone read the book 'How Europe Under Developed Africa' by Walter Rodney? This book seems to be popular among certain crowds. Have any Africans read it? What do Africans think of this book?

My friends read. Some said they were delighted, others didn't like it. Therefore it is impossible to ask this, it is a matter of personal preference in literature. For example, I like the novels more (as in this list:https://bookkooks.com/best-books-2018/), but my girlfriend hates) so ...)

I have many African friends and none has read that book including my white friends too. Seems kinda unpopular.

I was curious to know where Rodney fit gov't corruption into things as far as African development? We seem to hear more about corruption today than we did back in 1972 when this book was released.
