Decolonization and the decolonized by Albert Memmi( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this time of global instability and widespread violence, Albert Memmi—author of the highly influential and groundbreaking work The Colonizer and the Colonized—turns his attention to the present-day situation of formerly colonized peoples. In Decolonization and the Decolonized, Memmi expands his intellectual engagement with the subject and examines the manifold causes of the failure of decolonization efforts throughout the world.As outspoken and controversial as ever, Memmi initiates a much-needed discussion of the ex-colonized and refuses to idealize those who are too often painted as hapless victims. He shows how, in light of a radically changed world, it would be problematic—and even irresponsible—to continue to deploy concepts that were useful and valid during the period of anticolonial struggle.Decolonization and the Decolonized contributes to the most current debates on Islamophobia in France, the “new” anti-Semitism, and the unrelenting poverty gripping the African continent. Memmi, who is Jewish, was born and raised in Tunis, and focuses primarily on what he calls the Arab-Muslim condition, while also incorporating comparisons with South America, Asia, Black Africa, and the United States. In Decolonization and the Decolonized, Memmi has written that rare book—a manifesto informed by intellect and animated by passion—that will propel public analysis of the most urgent global issues to a new level."--JSTOR website (viewed April 13, 2017)

7 editions published between 1971 and 1975 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le racisme : description, définition, traitement by Albert Memmi( Book )

29 editions published between 1982 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le racisme est la dévalorisation profitable d'une différence" ou, plus techniquement, "le racisme est la valorisation, généralisée et définitive, de différences réelles ou imaginaires, au profit de l'accusateur et au détriment de sa victime, afin de légitimer une agression". Il y a une trentaine d'années, Albert Memmi proposait cette définition du racisme, largement utilisée depuis par les chercheurs et les enseignants. Il n'a cessé d'enrichir et de préciser sa réflexion sur le racisme au fil de nombreux textes. On retrouvera dans ce livre, outre la place centrale du racisme dans la pensée de l'auteur, les deux pôles de cette définition : la liaison étroite entre le racisme et la notion de différence ("le raciste, écrit-il, prétend toujours utiliser quelque différence pour en tirer profit"), et, d'autre part, la parenté entre le racisme et l'oppression ("le racisme est le symbole et le résumé de toute oppression"). L'auteur développe enfin, avec de nouveaux arguments, sa distinction entre le racisme, qu'il propose de limiter strictement au sens biologique, et l'hétérophobie, refus agressif d'autrui, et dont le racisme ne serait qu'un cas particulier.
