There is only a particle of truth in the fashionable notions of dependency complex colonizability etc There undoubtly exists at some point in its evolution a certain adherence of the colonized to colonization However this adherence is the result of colonization and not its cause It arises after and not before colonial occupation In order for the colonizer to be the complete master it is not enough for him to be so in actual fact but he must also believe in its legitimacy In order to that legitimacy to be complete it is not enough for the colonized to be a slave he must accept this role The bond between colonizer and colonized is thus destructive and creative It destroys and re creates the two partness of colonization into colonizer and colonized One is disfigured into an oppressor a partial unpatriotic and treacherous being worrying only about his privileges and their defense the other into an oppressed creature whose development is broken and who compromises by his defeatJust as the colonizer is tempted to accept his part the colonized is forced to accept to being colonizedWritten in 1957 you might think that this subject is already a thing of the past overcame a long time ago but unfortunately I have to say that it is still as valid as when it was written it seems that some attitudes are very difficult to eradicate or they are just intrinsic to the human race

Albert Memmi author of The Colonizer and the Colonized wrote in his conclusion I did not conceive of this book as a work of protest but that he only wanted to show completely and authentically the portraits of the colonizer and the colonized and the relationship that binds them Sometimes describing a situation truthfully and honestly is the highest form of protest in my opinion Especially when you live in an upside down world where the oppressor dresses in a hero costume and his victims become the villains In a world where racism continues to be a tool used by the privileged to excuse the injustice they have created this book is important now than ever It opens the readers eyes to a truth that even though colonialism works differently today the relationship between the protagonists remains just as uneual and unjust They just colonize us from afar now so they dont have to face their victims everyday and live amongst them that way they can live their privileged lives and claim ignorance on who pays the price for it I can t begin to explain how great this book is I wish I could buy hundreds of copies in arabic and give them out on the streets in our countries

The title of this book suggests something dated describing both a situation and a mindset that has either ceased to exist or become discredited with time As such I hesitated to pick it up initially But now having read it I have to say its one of the profound books I ve read in recent memory In timeless detail Memmi describes not just the psychologies of the oppressed and the oppressor but also the predicament of the leftist in the oppressing group who at once is attracted to and recoils from the way in which the oppressed tries to liberate themselves as well as from their end goals in which they would likely find no place Memmi is not just a pontificating observer He was a Tunisian living as a native under the colonial regime but straddling both worlds as a relatively privileged Jewish member of the colonized class thus able to interact with and experience both perspectives He describes the self destructive and somewhat self loathing tyranny of the colonizer who ossifies the society he colonizes the inherent fascism and the way in which the mediocre at home can become the grandiose in the colony and how jealously they defend that privilege As well Memmi catalogues as the psychological effects of colonization destroying the institutions and thus the memory of the colonized cutting them off from their language and debasing it preventing its growth and the practice of its higher forms and finally the eventual belief action upon the worst myths about themselvesThe best part I thought was about the leftist who hates colonialism but also ends up hating and fearing the means and goals of those he seeks to defend from its ravages This is still an absolutely timely and relevant predicament right up to the War on Terror The comparison is not as apocalyptically stark because these people don t have to live in the same societies only to agree not to harm one another and in the common perception not feed an imperial complex that benefits from such conflict but many of the same dynamics apply There really is a clash and a dissonance even applicable in movements such as the Black radical struggle in the United States many of whose white supporters both half hearted and zealous would lose something even perhaps much through the victory of It is best to acknowledge this predicament and offer an appreciation of it than to simply ignore it and leave one open to accusations of ignorance or foolhardinessThroughout the book I was able to picture the circumstances he described in multiple settings from Black Lives Matter to the War on Terror and they almost always seemed both moving urgent and relevant Memmi later recoiled from many of his views about the decolonized in light of the ugliness that much of decolonization brought to the fore but ironically the seeds of that ugliness seem explicitly predicted and accounted for in this book If anything that historical experience should count against the irrational optimism about human nature that progressives tend to uncritically project onto the world I recommend this book unreservedly I couldn t put it down and will certainly refer back to it in future
