Review: Colonial Desire: Hybridity in Theory, Culture and Race

User Review  - Naeem - Goodreads

These chapters do not string together coherently for me. but what an amazing book -- full of details about the history of racism. makes for a good companion to anything by Sven Lindqvist. You learn more than you could possibly want to know about the structural basis of so called sexual desire. Read full review
