Aime Cesaire's work is foundational for decolonial and postcolonial thought. His Discourse on Colonialism, first published in 1955, influenced generations of scholars and activists at the forefront of liberation struggles in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean and it remains a classic of anticolonial thought. His notion of the boomerang-effect of slavery and colonialism and his scathing critique of the French left for its failure to see racism as central to the struggle for liberation remain highly relevant to current debates.
This unique volume takes the form of a series of interviews with Cesaire that were conducted by Francoise Verges in 2004, shortly before his death. Cesaire's responses to Verges' questions cover a wide range of topics, including the origins of his political activism, the legacies of slavery and colonialism, the question of reparation for slavery and the problems of marrying literature to politics. His responses resonate today with such contentious issues as the boundaries of citizenship and the immigration question. Who should be considered a citizen of a nation? Should a state recognize slavery as a crime against humanity? What role did the colonies and its inhabitants play in the modernization of metropolitan centers? The book includes a substantial postface by Verges in which she situates Cesaire's work in its intellectual and political context.
This timely book brings Cesaire back into the present-day conversation on race, slavery and the legacy of colonialism. It will be of great interest to students and scholars throughout the humanities and social sciences and it will have a wide general readership.
