Discourse on Colonialism

Discourse on Colonialism
TITLE: Discourse on Colonialism ( A Poetics of Anticolonialism )


This classic work, first published in France in 1955, profoundly influenced the generation of scholars and activists at the forefront of liberation struggles in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. Nearly twenty years later, when published for the first time in English, Discourse on Colonialism inspired a new generation engaged in the Civil Rights, Black Power and antiwar movements. Aime Cesaire eloquently describes the brutal impact of capitalism and colonialism on both the colonizer and colonized, exposing the contradictions and hypocrisy implicit in western notions of "progress" and "civilization" upon encountering the "savage" or "primitive". He reaffirms African values, identity and culture and their relevance, reminding us that "the relationship between consciousness and reality is extremely complex...It is equally necessary to decolonize our minds, our inner life, at the same that we decolonize society."
