Mbembe, Achille: Out of the Dark Night

Essays on Decolonization
Achille Mbembe is one of the world's most profound critics of colonialism and its consequences. In Out of the Dark Night, he offers a rich analysis of the paradoxes of the postcolonial moment that points toward new liberatory models of community and humanity.Out of the Dark Night offers a reading of the contemporary world quite unlike any other. Its erudition is breathtaking, its critical acuity singular. Scarcely anything of significance to our troubled age goes unmentioned; race, colonialism/decolonization/decoloniality, globalization, capitalism, democracy, knowledge, history, and much besides are theorized anew from an Afropolitan perspective, leavened by both Francophone and Anglophone critique. This is a foundational exercise in intellectual "disenclosure," the shattering of old boundaries in pursuit of a visionary grasp of the history of the present.
