On the postcolony by Achille Mbembe( )

36 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and held by 2,553 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
Critique of Black reason by Achille Mbembe( Book )

47 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eminent critic Achille Mbembe reevaluates history and racism, offering a capacious genealogy of the category of Blackness-from the Atlantic slave trade to the present-to show how the conjoining of the biological fiction of race with definitions of Blackness have been and continue to be used to uphold oppression
Johannesburg : the elusive metropolis( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 424 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

Politiques de l'inimitié by Achille Mbembe( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prés. de l'éd.: Cet essai explore cette relation particulière qui s'étend sans cesse et se reconfigure à l'échelle planétaire : la relation d'inimitié. S'appuyant en partie sur l'œuvre psychiatrique et politique de Frantz Fanon, l'auteur montre comment, dans le sillage des conflits de la décolonisation du XXe siècle, la guerre - sous la figure de la conquête et de l'occupation, de la terreur et de la contre-insurrection - est devenue le sacrement de notre époque. Cette transformation a, en retour, libéré des mouvements passionnels qui, petit à petit, poussent les démocraties libérales à endosser les habits de l'exception, à entreprendre au loin des actions inconditionnées, et à vouloir exercer la dictature contre elles-mêmes et contre leurs ennemis. Dans cet essai brillant et brûlant d'actualité, Achille Mbembe s'interroge, entre autres, sur les conséquences de cette inversion, et sur les termes nouveaux dans lesquels se pose désormais la question des rapports entre la violence et la loi, la norme et l'exception, l'état de guerre, l'état de sécurité et l'état de liberté. Dans le contexte de rétrécissement du monde et de son repeuplement à la faveur des nouveaux mouvements migratoires, l'essai n'ouvre pas seulement des pistes neuves pour une critique des nationalismes ataviques. Il pose également, par-delà l'humanisme, les fondements d'une politique de l'humanité

Black letters: from darkness to light - it was under this title that Alain Mabanckou pronounced, on March 17, 2016, his inaugural lesson as a visiting professor at the Collège de France, a lesson that saw jostling more than a thousand listeners. Confirmed by this echo, Alain Mabanckou beat the reminder of the researchers, writers and thinkers of postcolonial Africa, inviting them to come and debate on the theme Think and write Africa today. It is the proceedings of this symposium, dated May 2, 2016, that we publish, the interventions of 19 participants from all fields of knowledge and creative writing. The deep wish is that this symposium "resounds as a call to the advent of African Studies in France". This is one way of questioning "the delay France has made in the place to be given to postcolonial studies, while in America almost all universities have recognized them and regard them as one of the most dynamic fields of research and The most promising.--Translation of page 4 by Seuil : http://www.seuil.com/ouvrage/penser-et-ecrire-l-afrique-aujourd-hui-alain-mabanckou/9782021346664
Oeuvres by Frantz Fanon( Book )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in French and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frantz Fanon, born in Martinique in 1925, died in Washington in 1961, psychiatrist and anti-colonial activist, left a work that, half a century later, retains an astonishing topicality and is increasingly spread throughout the world. Chief medical officer at the psychiatric hospital of Blida (Algeria) from 1953 onwards, he is confronted with the effects of the situation of "systematic dehumanization" of the "natives". This led him very quickly to join the struggle of the National Liberation Front which engaged in November 1954 the "war of liberation" of Algeria. Two years later, he resigned from his post and joined the FLN in Tunis, where he collaborated with the newspaper El Moudjahid , before being carried away, on 6 December 1961, by leukemia at the age of thirty-six. His lightning trajectory is marked by the publication of three major books: Black Skin, White Masks (Seuil, 1952), The An V of the Algerian Revolution (Maspero, 1959), The Damned of the Earth (Maspero, 1961). And in 1964, François Maspero published a collection of some of his political texts, under the title Pour la révolution africaine . It is these four works that compile this volume, supplemented by a preface by the historian Achille Mbembe and an introduction by the philosopher Magali Bessone. The Damned of the Earth (Maspero, 1961). And in 1964, François Maspero published a collection of some of his political texts, under the title Pour la révolution africaine .

Le grand repli by Nicolas Bancel( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 53 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]
La guerre du Cameroun : l'invention de la Françafrique 1948-1971 by Thomas Deltombe( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La légende veut que la France, patrie des droits de l'homme ait généreusement offert l'indépendance à ses anciennes colonies d'Afrique noire en 1960. Ce livre raconte une tout autre histoire: celle d'une guerre brutale, violente, meurtrière, qui a permis à Paris d'inventer un nouveau système de domination : la Françafrique. Cette guerre secrète a pour théâtre le Cameroun des années 1950 et 1960. Confrontées à un vaste mouvement social et politique, porté par un parti indépendantiste, l'Union des populations du Cameroun (UPC), les autorités françaises décident de passer en force. En utilisant les mêmes méthodes qu'en Algérie (torture, bombardements, internements de masse, action psychologique, etc.), elles parviennent en quelques années à éradiquer militairement les contestataires et à installer à Yaoundé une dictature profrançaise. En pleine guerre froide, et alors que l'opinion française a les yeux tournés vers l'Algérie, la guerre du Cameroun, qui a fait des dizaines de milliers de morts, est à l'époque passée inaperçue. Elle a ensuite été effacée des mémoires par ceux qui l'ont remportée : les Français et leurs alliés camerounais. Le crime fut donc presque parfait : les nouvelles autorités camerounaises ont repris les mots d'ordre de l'U PC pour vider l'"indépendance N de son contenu et la mettre au service... de la France ! Mais la mémoire revient depuis quelques années. Et les fantômes du Cameroun viennent hanter l'ancienne métropole. Laquelle, de plus en plus contestée sur le continent africain, devra tôt ou tard regarder son passé en face."--Verso
