Abstract: 

John Shannon Saul has described himself as a ?revolutionary traveller?. Over the past five decades (and counting!) he has been involved in profound social, political and economic change in Tanzania, Mozambique and South Africa. These decades saw active building of the left in Canada as well, with Saul working as an activist in the Southern African solidarity movement, challenging Canadian government and corporate collusion with white dictatorship and, later, their participation in the ?recolonisation? of that region. An author (more than 20 volumes and a vast number of academic and popular articles), an editor (This Magazine; Southern Africa Report), and an activist, Saul remains committed to anti-imperialist/anti-capitalist work in Canada, Africa and elsewhere. In this article he reflects on his career working on liberation movements and revolutionary struggles, while at the same time looking forward to new challenges and opportunities.
