Abstract

This paper examines copious extant and current theoretical perspectives on the highly vexing and contentious issue of imperialism in Africa highlighting the marxist, Neo-maxist and the Orthodox theoretical directions. Although the critique took exceptions with these contending explanations of the phenomenon of imperialism, it, nevertheless, inclines towards the economic theory of imperialism as proffered by the marxist or radical Scholars. The primary reason, the critique contends, resides in the nature and dialectics of capitalism; that capitalism by its very nature is expansionist, immoral, despicable and racists.
