On the postcolony by Achille Mbembe( Book )

34 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and held by 515 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 )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 326 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

Le grand repli by Nicolas Bancel( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce livre est d'abord une réaction au processus qui mène la France au bord de l'abîme, sur fond d'angoisses identitaires et de nostalgie de grandeur. Comment en est-on arrivé là ? À cette fragmentation de la société, à ces tensions intercommunautaires, au ressac effrayant de l'antisémitisme, du rejet de l'islam et de la haine de soi ? Comment en est-on arrivé à une logique de repli généralisée ? Comment la France a-t-elle pu céder en quelques années à la hantise d'un ennemi intérieur et au rejet de l'immigration ? Comment expliquer les blocages de la mémoire collective sur la colonisation ou l'esclavage ? Certes, nous ne sommes plus au " bon temps des colonies ", mais certains ont la nostalgie de cet " ordre impérial ", revendiqué comme l'idéal d'une " France blanche ". Et le mythe du " grand remplacement " va de pair désormais avec le fantasme du " grand départ " des immigrés issus des pays non européens et de leurs enfants. Nous en sommes là ! Il est grand temps de réagir. [Source : éditeur]
