Pathfinder books draw widespread interest at African Studies conference

SAN FRANCISCO—Some 1600 professors, researchers, and students gathered here November 30–December 2 at the annual African Studies Association conference to discuss their research and developments in African politics, culture, and history. Through presentations on a wide range of topics, including the recent coups d'etat across West Africa; imperialist exploitation of the continent’s resources; China's relations with African countries; migration; the condition of women, the devastating impact of the world crisis of capitalism could be seen.

            At an attractive booth volunteers with Pathfinder Press engaged in non-stop discussion with participants on many issues, including the fight against Jew-hatred, the war in Ukraine, strikes and labor resistance in the U.S.

            The booth featured books on Africa, Cuba’s socialist revolution and works of revolutionaries from Karl Marx, Frederick Engels, V.I. Lenin, Leon Trotsky to Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Maurice Bishop, Malcolm X and leaders of the Socialist Workers Party.

             The top selling titles included books by Sankara, leader of the 1983-87 revolution in Burkina Faso and titles on the Cuban revolution. 

            Over 50 participants signed cards indicating they would like more information. Some asked for visits by Pathfinder volunteers to discuss getting Pathfinder books into libraries and using them in university courses.
