Although the topic of our discussion has now changed, the theme remains the same: changing the world. In the opening segment of the preceding essay, Endless debate over changing the world (1) – (6), I introduced three books and their authors: How to change the world: Tales of Marx and Marxism by Eric Hobsbawm; Africa must be modern: The modern imperative in contemporary Africa (A Manifesto) by Olufemi Taiwo; and The world we like to see: Revolutionary objectives in the 21st century, by Samir Amin. To these three texts I may now add – for the purpose of this continuation – selections from Biodun Jeyifo’s Talakawa Liberation Courier column in The Guardian (Sunday). Let me simply, for now, call these selections Essays on modernity and post-modernity (June 2011 and April, May and June, 2012).
