“This ingenious account offers sharp new insight to the history of African Literary Studies and decolonization by framing them in light of the Cold War; not just in terms of subjection by the West, as stressed by postcolonial perspectives, but also by the colonial outreach of the USSR. As Monica Popescu makes stunningly clear, African writers of the period—Aimé Césaire, Youssef El-Sebai, or Ezekial Mphahlele—brought to our understanding of twentieth-century imperialism a comprehensiveness unrivaled before or since.” — Jean Comaroff, Alfred North Whitehead Professor of African and African American studies and of Anthropology
