Beyond the Coloniality of Internationalism: Reworlding the World from the Global South

Beyond the Coloniality of Internationalism: Reworlding the World from the Global South

Deploying a decolonial epistemic perspective to reflect on a terminally ill international system besieged by numerous crises, Sabelo J. Ndlovu-Gatsheni makes a strong case for reworlding the world from the global South in general and global Africa in particular. Taking the Russia-Ukraine War as a crisis that portends a change of the present world order, he projects an emerging planetary pluriversal future. Challenging mainstream theories of internationalism, the book highlights anti-imperial struggles and decolonial praxes of reconstituting and remaking the world after neoliberal imperial internationalism.

“Sabelo Ndlovu-Gatsheni calls for a root and branch dismantling of the moribund order and its replacement with a new one that draws from the rich decolonial, anti-imperialist, anti-patriarchal, and human-centred heritage that is rooted in the history of struggles in the global South.”- Adebayo Olukoshi, Distinguished Professor, Wits School of Governance, South Africa

 “This book is a magnificent antidote to what Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, encapsulated in a mighty single sentence: the danger of a single story. By doing so, the book reminds us of another sign of the change of era: decolonial thinking and being in the world, rewording the world, is not an academic question, it is about life. Knowing to live rather than living to know.” Walter D. Mignolo, William Wannamaker Distinguished Professor, Duke University

Sabelo Ndlovu-Gatsheni’s powerful book draws from the Ukraine war to provide an anti-colonial interpretation of international relations.” Vijay Prashad, Professor & Director, Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research

“Sabelo Ndlovu-Gatsheni crafts a powerful message of deliverance and peace.”-Stephen Chan, Professor of World Politics, SOAS, University of London

“Sabelo Ndlovu-Gatsheni repaints the canvas vividly from the right side, revisiting history, critiquing paradigms, and, most importantly, offering prospects for an alternative approach.” Akosua Adomako Ampofo, Professor of African & Gender Studies, University of Ghana

 “Sabelo Ndlovu-Gatsheni undertakes a breath-taking task of synthesis, bringing together into conversation Marxism, the Black Radical Tradition and decolonial perspectives into an analysis of the continuing coloniality of international power relations.” Aditya Nigam, Professor at the Centre for Developing Societies, Delhi

 “Ndlovu- Gatsheni’s book is a political toolbox, as much as it is a spiritual canvas, and a historical map for all of us who refuse to believe that no other world is possible.Ricardo Sanin-Restrepo, Professor of Legal and Political Theory, Universidad Javeriana

Coloniality of Power in Postcolonial Africa – Myths of Decolonization

Coloniality of Power in Postcolonial Africa – Myths of Decolonization


Coloniality of Power marries the historical complexities of the past with the ambiguities of the present to expose the obstacles imposed by domination and exploitation, while at the same time revealing the oppositional strategies of intellectual and other forms of everyday and organized resistance and nationalism on behalf of the ongoing project of nation building. The urgency of the moment drives the practical insurgencies to produce The Africa We Want.

Toyin Falola, Professor and author of Decolonizing African Studies

“Ndlovu-Gatsheni demonstrates an encyclopedic knowledge of post-colonial and colonial theory in his evaluation of current African problems.” (From review of Coloniality of Power in Journal of Retracing Africa)

Jason Morgan, University of Texas at Austin

“To decolonise is not automatically to emancipate; to proclaim the postcolonial is not necessarily to end dependency. These terms become often a rhetoric to avoid a sometimes painful exploration and interrogation of the contradictions involved in the long road to true and authentic freedoms. Sabelo Ndlovu-Gatsheni’s startling and important new book refuses us the luxury of rhetoric and invites us to go very much deeper.”

Stephen Chan, Professor of World Politics, SOAS, University of London
