Sample Book Insights:
#1 Decolonization is the process of removing a country’s colonial rule, and is always a violent process. It starts with the basic claims of the colonized, and is accomplished by changing the social fabric inside out.
#2 Decolonization, the process of changing the order of the world, is an agenda for total disorder. It cannot be accomplished by the wave of a magic wand, a natural cataclysm, or a gentleman’s agreement.
#3 The colonized world is a world divided in two. The dividing line, the border, is represented by the police stations and the barracks. In the colonies, the official, legitimate agent of the colonizer and the regime of oppression is the police officer or the soldier.
#4 The Native sector is not complementary to the European sector. The two sectors are separate and do not interact with each other in service of a higher unity. They are governed by a purely Aristotelian logic, and follow the dictates of mutual exclusion.
