On the postcolony by Achille Mbembe( Book )

30 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Achille Mbembe is one of the most brilliant theorists of postcolonial studies writing today. In On the Postcolony he profoundly renews our understanding of power and subjectivity in Africa. In a series of provocative essays, Mbembe contests diehard Africanist and nativist perspectives as well as some of the key assumptions of postcolonial theory. This thought-provoking and groundbreaking collection of essays-his first book to be published in English-develops and extends debates first ignited by his well-known 1992 article "Provisional Notes on the Postcolony," in which he developed his notion of the "banality of power" in contemporary Africa. Mbembe reinterprets the meanings of death, utopia, and the divine libido as part of the new theoretical perspectives he offers on the constitution of power. He works with the complex registers of bodily subjectivity - violence, wonder, and laughter - to profoundly contest categories of oppression and resistance, autonomy and subjection, and state and civil society that marked the social theory of the late twentieth century. This provocative book will surely attract attention with its signal contribution to the rich interdisciplinary arena of scholarship on colonial and postcolonial discourse, history, anthropology, philosophy, political science, psychoanalysis, and literary criticism." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/description/ucal041/00062854.html
Johannesburg : the elusive metropolis( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johannesburg: The Elusive Metropolis is a pioneering effort to insert South Africa's largest city into urban theory, on its own terms. Johannesburg is Africa's premier metropolis. Yet theories of urbanization have cast it as an emblem of irresolvable crisis, the spatial embodiment of unequal economic relations and segregationist policies, and a city that responds to but does not contribute to modernity on the global scale. Complicating and contesting such characterizations, the contributors to this collection reassess classic theories of metropolitan modernity as they explore the experience of 'city-ness' and urban life in post-apartheid South Africa. They portray Johannesburg as a polycentric and international city with a hybrid history that continually permeates the present. Turning its back on rigid rationalities of planning and racial separation, Johannesburg has become a place of intermingling and improvisation, a city that is fast developing its own brand of cosmopolitan culture

Der globale Kapitalismus hat seit seiner Entstehung immer schon nicht nur Waren, sondern auch "Rassen" und "Spezies" produziert. Ihm liegt ein rassistisches Denken, eine "schwarze Vernunft" zugrunde, wie der groe afrikanische Philosoph und Vordenker des Postkolonialismus Achille Mbembe in seinem brillanten und mitreienden neuen Buch zeigt. In kraftvollen Linien zeichnet Mbembe die Genese unserer Gegenwart nach, indem er darstellt, wie sich der globale Kapitalismus seit dem Beginn der Neuzeit aus dem transatlantischen Sklavenhandel entwickelt hat. In dieser Zeit steigt Europa zum Zentrum der Welt auf und kreiert die Figur des "Negers", des "Menschen-Materials", der "Menschen-Ware", die über den "schwarzen Atlantik" gehandelt wird. Mit dem Abolitionismus, der Revolution in Haiti, dem Antikolonialismus oder der amerikanischen Bürgerrechtsbewegung kommt zwar seit der Aufklärung eine erste globale Welle der Kritik an der Sklaverei und der "schwarzen Vernunft" des Kapitalismus auf. Dieser breitet sich jedoch in seiner neoliberalen Spielart unaufhaltsam weiter aus und überträgt die Figur des "Negers" nun auf die gesamte "subalterne Menschheit". In diesem Prozess des "Schwarzwerdens der Welt", so die radikale Kritik Mbembes, bilden auch Europa und seine Bürger mittlerweile nur noch eine weitere Provinz im weltumspannenden Imperium des neoliberalen Kapitalismus.

Comment penser la France d'aujourd'hui sans verser dans la nostalgie à l'égard de sa mythique grandeur passée, et comment construire un nouveau vivre ensemble ? De quelle manière sortir des pièges de l'identité nationale et des fantasmes sur les dangers de l'immigration ? Comment penser les relations de la France dans le monde postcolonial, alors que le continent africain fête les cinquante ans d'indépendance des anciennes colonies françaises, que les territoires des outre-mers réclament de nouveaux rôles dans la République et que de nouveaux centres et périphéries émergent ? Prolongeant le tableau dressé en 2005 dans La Fracture coloniale (également paru à La Découverte), les auteurs de ce livre apportent un éclairage original sur les courant encore mal connus en France des post-colonial et subaltern studies. Ils tentent de comprendre pourquoi ces courants engagent tant d'oppositions et de fantasmes et examinent la société française à l'épreuve des perspectives postcoloniales. Avec les contributions de spécialistes de tous horizons, internationalement reconnus, cet ouvrage constitue à la fois, une somme et une ouverture. Il analyse les mille facettes des effets contemporains de la période coloniale et incite à repenser la mondialisation, ainsi que la place des diasporas. Il s'attache à une critique des discriminations et des frontières politiques, interroge les enjeux culturels et les relations intercommunautaires, explique les conflits de mémoire, questionne les crises urbaines et explore les mouvements moiblisant les territoires des outre-mers
