Africa is a continent rich in natural resources. Copper, gold, diamonds, platinum, rubber, and aluminum are just some examples of what the land has to offer. In the nineteenth century, powerful and industrial Europe desired these raw materials in large quantities. The means of acquiring these resources inexpensively came through Europe's colonization and control of Africa, which also gave Europe access to cheap labor. Europe's economy flourished as Africa experienced what theorist Walter Rodney (1972) described as ?technical retrogression? (113).
