The Empire Within: Postcolonial Thought and Political Activism in Sixties Montreal

In The Empire Within, Sean Mills pulls back the curtain on the activists and intellectuals of the 1960s, showing their engagement both with each other and with people from around the world. He demonstrates how activists of different backgrounds and with different political aims drew on ideas of decolonization to rethink the meanings attached to the politics of sex, race, and class and to imagine themselves as part of a broad transnational movement of anti-colonial and anti-imperialist resistance.
