Summary
Written at a time when national independence movements were gaining influence in Africa The Colonizer and the Colonized is the seminal study of the psychological effects of colonialism, and its political and social influence, on both the oppressor and the oppressed. Albert Memmi explores how colonialism destroys both the colonizer and the colonized, a work that remains strikingly topical in its understanding of the enduring legacy of colonisation in the twenty-first century. Memmi speaks of the Third World experience as much as that of the European countries, Britain and France, struggling with the aftermath of their imperial past. Memmi s penetrating insights into the colonial inheritance brings into perspective the origins of all oppressions of one group by another. In an age of global terrorism, war and economic colonisation The Colonizer and the Colonized remains a relevant and necessary text. --
