Every once in a while I like to share books with Tumblr. This time I bring several books on the politics of imperialism, Orientalism and Empire narrative(s) experienced by post-colonial nations in the Middle East and South Asia as well as Africa. Five writers from five different places with excellent thoughts for you to read and share: (From left) Eqbal Ahmed from Pakistan, Edward Said from Palestine, Hamid Dabashi from Iran, Vijay Prashad from India, Aimé Fernand David Césaire (Frantz Fanon’s teacher!) from Martinique.
