"Frequently, discussions about decoloniality are delinked from discussions on development studies and questions of political-economy. Sabelo J. Ndlovu-Gatsheni bridges these literatures to produce an original intervention in African Studies and Postcolonial/Decolonial Studies with important implications to Latin America and Asia. The many contributions this book offers are of interest to many fields of scholarship. This is a must to read from the most important decolonial thinker in Africa today!"  Ramon Grosfoguel, University of California at Berkeley

"The focus on complex and deep historical processes of colonialism/coloniality, and engagement with topical theoretical discussions within the fields of political economy, global politics, decolonial studies, development studies and African studies, is complemented by constant reference to past and contemporary decolonial struggles … Ndlovu-Gatsheni is able to produce powerful analyses of the colonial in Africa by bringing Latin American scholars into conversation with African writers who do not explicitly use ‘coloniality’." Felix Mantz, Queen Mary University of London, writing in Review of African Political Economy
