The colonizer and the colonized by Albert Memmi( Book )

171 editions published between 1957 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 2,472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nearly 40 years after its first publication in French this collection of Sartre's writings on colonialism remains a supremely powerful and relevant polemical work. Over a series of thirteen essays Sartre brings the full force of his remarkable intellect relentlessly to bear on his own country's conduct in Algeria and by extension the West's conduct in the Third World in general. The tussle is not equal, and the Western imperialists emerge at the end bloody, bruised and thoroughly chastened. Most startling of all is Sartre's advocacy of violence as a legitimate response to repression, motivated by his belief that freedom is the central characteristic of being human. Whether one agrees with his every conclusion or not, Colonialism and Neocolonialism shows a philosopher passionately engaged in using philosophy as a force for change in the world. An important influence on postcolonial thought ever since, this book takes on added resonance in the light of the West's most recent bout of interference in the non-Western world."--BOOK JACKET

Le racisme : description, définition, traitement by Albert Memmi( Book )

15 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in French and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le racisme est la dévalorisation profitable d'une différence" ou, plus techniquement, "le racisme est la valorisation, généralisée et définitive, de différences réelles ou imaginaires, au profit de l'accusateur et au détriment de sa victime, afin de légitimer une agression". Il y a une trentaine d'années, Albert Memmi proposait cette définition du racisme, largement utilisée depuis par les chercheurs et les enseignants. Il n'a cessé d'enrichir et de préciser sa réflexion sur le racisme au fil de nombreux textes. On retrouvera dans ce livre, outre la place centrale du racisme dans la pensée de l'auteur, les deux pôles de cette définition : la liaison étroite entre le racisme et la notion de différence ("le raciste, écrit-il, prétend toujours utiliser quelque différence pour en tirer profit"), et, d'autre part, la parenté entre le racisme et l'oppression ("le racisme est le symbole et le résumé de toute oppression"). L'auteur développe enfin, avec de nouveaux arguments, sa distinction entre le racisme, qu'il propose de limiter strictement au sens biologique, et l'hétérophobie, refus agressif d'autrui, et dont le racisme ne serait qu'un cas particulier.
