'A Thousand Flowers', a project of the Committee for Academic Freedom in Africa, is published by African World Press and edited by Silvia Federici, George Caffentzis and Ousseina Alidou. The book is a collection of articles that chronicles the social struggles against Structural Adjustment Programmes (SAP) in African universities from the 1980’s into the 90’s. It deals with experiences that are central to the lived experience on many African campuses but which almost never appear in donor funded 'research'. In the realms of academic publishing and research, so thoroughly dominated by the money of the World Bank and others and so removed from the lived experience of ordinary people, this book is, indeed, an insurrection of subjugated knowledge.
