It was kind of the same thing. And I must say, written in a much more coherent and understandable manner.

He was excommunicated from many circles for writing what he wrote in this book, and in a France reeling from the shock of losing their world power, the devastation of WWII, and in a state of denial that I believe has lasted up to the present day that makes some sense. Recommended for students of colonialism and French history, and Sartre fans who want to see a different side of their hero.

Jun 23, Rachel rated it it was amazing. If Fanon is the oppressed’s guide to decolonization, Sartre is the oppressor’s. Some excerpts from his narrative of colonialism’s rise and fall: It is not an abstract mechanism.

The system exists, it functions; the neocolonialjsm cycle of colonialism is a reality. But this reality is embodied in a million colonists, children and grandchildren of colonists, who have been shaped by colonialism and who think, speak and act accord If Fanon is the oppressed’s guide to decolonization, Sartre is the oppressor’s. But this reality is embodied in a million colonists, children and grandchildren of colonists, who have been shaped by colonialism and who think, speak and act according to the very principles of the colonial system.

Sarre among them reject their objective reality: They will change nothing, be of no use to anyone, and find their moral comfort in their malaise, that is all. The others–and they are the majority–sooner or later colohialism themselves as they are. How can this elite of usurpers, conscious of their mediocrity, justify their privileges? That will not be difficult as, precisely, the system deprives them of everything: Thus oppression justifies itself: It is not yet horror but a feeling that horror exists, very close by, all the more threatening because we cannot and will not look it in the face.

And then, all at a flash which makes it blindingly obvious: Everyone keeps quiet, everyone looks at their neighbor who keeps quiet, everybody wonders: What does he believe? What has he decided to forget? What if I were to find a criminal acquiescence in the man who has just shaken my hand?

This man says nothing: But I do not say anything either. What if, on the contrary, it were he who reproached me for my spinelessness? Mistrust teaches us a new solitude: It is one and the same ahd, moreover, since we are all the same and are afraid of questioning people because their response might well reveal our degradation.

If, for example, one of them, without violence, to rid himself as quickly as possible of his anguish, says to us, under his breath, ‘And what about the fellagha, then? Have they not carried out atrocities? And that is what makes us guilty: Here it is, completely naked and not beautiful: The non-violent are looking pleased with sartrr If you are not victims, since the government for which you voted, since the army in which your young brothers have served, carried out a ‘genocide’ without hesitation or remorse, then you are unquestionably executioners.

And if you choose to be victims, to risk one or two days in prison, you are just extricating yourself while you can.

But you cannot extricate yourself: Understand this for once: But if the entire regime and even your non-violent thoughts are a condition born of an age-old oppression, your passivity only serves to place you on the side of the oppressors. Different human beings, of better quality. Jun 21, Lonnie Freedman rated it liked it Shelves: Conservatism engenders the selection of mediocre people.

That will not be difficult as, precisely, the system deprives them of everything; colonialist practice has engraved the colonial idea on things themselves; it is the movement of things which designates both the colonist and the colonized. The colonist can absolve himself only by systematically pursuing the ‘dehumanization’ of the colonized, that is by identifying a little more each day with the colonial apparatus. Terror and exploitation dehumanize, and the exploiter uses this dehumanization to justify further exploitation.

The machine runs smoothly; impossible to distinguish between idea and praxis, and between the latter neicolonialism objective necessity.

These moments of colonialism sometimes influence one another and sometimes blend. Oppression is, first of all, hatred of the oppressor towards the oppressed. Only one limit to this enterprise of extermination: It is here that the colonists meet their own contraction: No more underclass, no more exploitation: The system wants the death and multiplication of its victims at the same time; any transformation will be fatal to it: The heavy machine keeps those who are compelled to turn it between life and death — always closer to death than life; petrified ideology applies itself to considering men as animals that talk.

Colonialism and Neocolonialism

Nobody can treat a man ‘like a dog’ if he does not first consider him as a man. The impossible dehumanization of the oppressed turns against the oppressors and becomes their alienation. It is the oppressors themselves who, by their slightest gesture, resuscitate the humanity they wish to destroy; and, as they deny it to others, they find it everywhere like an enemy force. To escape from this, they must harden, give themselves the opaque consistency and impermeability of stone; in short they in turn must dehumanize themselves” Sep neoccolonialism, Heather rated colonialis, really liked it.

Unbelievably fresh and relevant. Everyone should read this. Oct 20, Hazel rated it liked it. A very informative collection of essays about political events during the 50’s, particularly Algeria’s struggle for independence from France, and the Congo’s independence from Belgium. Throughout the essays, he offers insight into the system of colonialism, and how it manifests itself in modern times, through economic dominance and exploitation.

It was a bit over my head, as it is a bit cerebral and difficult to read, but very interesting, nonetheless. Dec 22, Little Danny rated it really liked it.

A nuanced and often overlooked examination of colonial ethics and politics and anti-colonial struggles. Another user summed it up well, calling it something like the colonizer’s guide to anti-colonialism. Worth reading as a complement to Fanon, though I also recommend reading this text in conjunction with Camus’ often and rightly decried writings on Algeria. Doing so really drives the old mantra home: Jul xolonialism, Janine Gertz rated it liked it.

This book is a collection of essays which offer a French perspective for those pursuing colonial studies. Sartre’s perspectives on post-colonialism written in have relevance even today.
