Beyond Caribbean coloniality -- Part I. The Coloniality of the present -- The coloniality of citizenship in the contemporary Anglophone Caribbean -- Creole discourse and racism in the Caribbean -- Part II. The Caribbean beyond -- A Jamesian Poiesis? C.L.R. James's new society and Caribbean freedom -- The Caribbean beyond: Sylvia Wynter's black experience of new world coloniality and the human after Western Man -- Conclusion: A Caribbean sympathy
Against the lethargy and despair of the contemporary Anglophone Caribbean experience, Aaron Kamugisha gives a powerful argument for advancing Caribbean radical thought as an answer to the conundrums of the present. Beyond Coloniality is an extended meditation on Caribbean thought and freedom at the beginning of the 21st century and a profound rejection of the postindependence social and political organization of the Anglophone Caribbean and its contentment with neocolonial arrangements of power. Kamugisha provides a dazzling reading of two towering figures of the Caribbean intellectual tradition, C. L. R. James and Sylvia Wynter, and their quest for human freedom beyond coloniality. Ultimately, he urges the Caribbean to recall and reconsider the radicalism of its most distinguished 20th-century thinkers in order to imagine a future beyond neocolonialism
