This volume is the product of a conference organized by Elisabeth Mudimbe-Boyi and Dan Edelstein at Stanford University in April 2006. The overall objective was to examine shifts in the relations between France as former colonial power and those who had been colonized, following on from decolonization and the end of France’s colonial empire.
