Abstract

In Out of the Dark Night: Essays on Decolonization, Achille Mbembe offers a new collection exploring the complexities of decolonisation, intervening in debates about French democracy, African modernity, the aspirations of postcolonial thought and the possibilities of imagining community on a planetary scale. Ayça Çubukçu reviews this poetic and consistently erudite work, exploring the vision of humanity that Mbembe imagines across the collection. Out of the Dark Night: Essays on Decolonization. Achille Mbembe (trans. by Daniela Ginsburg). Columbia University Press. 2021.
