'I have several books about Europe on my book-shelf. Some are apologetic and celebratory, others are critical and reflective. All of them are written by Europeans. Hamid Dabashi's will be the first that takes Europe as an object of study and no longer only the home of thinking subjects' -- Walter D. Mignolo, author of 'The Darker Side of Western Modernity: Global Futures, Decolonial Options' 'A passionate and erudite reflection on the aftermath of Europe. Demonstrating the limits of the frequent, yet reactionary, defenses of Europe from left and right, Dabashi invites us to consider the geographies of imagination, thought, and praxis that appear behind the shadows of capitalism and coloniality. A crucial text to advance post- and decolonial thinking across the Global South' -- Nelson Maldonado-Torres, author of 'Against War: Views from the Underside of Modernity' 'Cesaire's 'Discourse on Colonialism' denounces what is perpetrated in the name of Europe. 'Europe and its Shadows' raises a more radical question: What is 'Europe'?' -- Souleymane Bachir Diagne, author of 'Postcolonial Bergson'
