About the Author

George Ciccariello-Maher is Associate Professor of Politics and Global Studies at Drexel University and the author of We Created Chavez: A People's History of the Venezuelan Revolution, also published by Duke University Press.


"The author makes important contributions to the fields of dialectics, Marxism, postmodernism, and postcolonial studies, and he has an aptitude for making tough philosophical questions accessible. Decolonizing Dialectics provides an excellent framework for understanding the major theorists he uses as well as Hegel, Marx, Foucault, and several other scholars." -- Luis M. Sierra * Journal of Global South Studies * "This clear, well-written and refreshingly forthright book aims to decolonize dialectics and to wield that decolonized dialectics (never, Ciccariello-Maher insists, `the dialectic') as a method to understand and further decolonization. . . . This is an important work best read in the spirit in which it is written: with urgency, anger, hope and a refusal to simply accept what is present." -- David M Bell * Political Studies Review * "Decolonizing Dialectics' timeliness lies in the fact that it gives us an approach to these tensions as academics, which exploits their decolonial potential, and affirms, after and through Fanon, their necessary violence, rather than just settle for reciprocity, closure, or another book on dialectics." -- Shona N. Jackson * Antipode * "Decolonizing Dialectics makes an essential contribution to our understanding of the dialectic of unity and difference and how difference becomes antagonism within and beyond the legacies of colonialism. It is essential reading in the renewal of debate about the philosophy of internal relations and the systematic dialectic." -- Adam David Morton * Progress in Political Economy * "[A] rather unique and sophisticated project that at times leaves the reader breathless from the elegant speed with which it moves through concepts.... [T]his book functions as an opening, by recentering dialectical reason and placing it in service of a radical anti-systemic practice, to successive discussions...." -- Joshua Moufawad-Paul * Marx & Philosophy Review of Books * "Decolonizing Dialectics marks an important contribution to a growing body of literature concerned with decolonizing critical - and, more broadly speaking, political - theory, as well as a worthwhile addition to the works devoted to the dialectical tradition and its critics. In particular, Ciccariello-Maher's readings of Fanon and Dussel offer a valuable new take on their respective engagements with dialectical thought, and on the complex and fraught relationship that dialectics shares with decolonization, theoretically and practically." -- Michael Elliott * Contemporary Political Theory * "Theoretically informed and mindful of the correctives real history offers to speculation, this book is a noteworthy contribution to critical social theory and decolonial discourses. Recommended. Graduate students through faculty." -- B. G. Chang * Choice *
