9780253218940: The Sexual Demon of Colonial Power: Pan-African Embodiment and Erotic Schemes of Empire (Blacks in the Diaspora)

The Sexual Demon of Colonial Power is a political, cultural, and intellectual study of race, sex, and Western empire. Greg Thomas interrogates a system that represents race, gender, sexuality, and class in certain systematic and oppressive ways. By connecting sex and eroticism to geopolitics both politically and epistemologically, he examines the logic, operations, and politics of sexuality in the West. The book focuses on the centrality of race, class, and empire to Western realities of "gender and sexuality" and to problematic Western attempts to theorize gender and sexuality (or embodiment). Addressing a wide range of intellectual disciplines, it holds out the hope for an analysis freed from the domination of white, Western terms of reference.

From the Publisher:

"Thomas offers here one of the most provocative and consequential analyses of empire and sexual politics in recent years. His work provides new ways of conceptualizing sexuality, race, and empire which makes the case for rethinking all of the ways in which these fields are studied. His erudition is vast and the acuity of his analysis, unparalleled." --Judith Butler, Maxine Elliot Professor, University of California, Berkeley

About the Author:

Greg Thomas is Assistant Professor of English at Syracuse University and editor of Proud Flesh: New Afrikan Journal of Culture, Politics, & Consciousness.
