DecolonizingSolidarity has been eagerly welcomed by more experienced activists who have lived through tensions and dilemmas involved in this kind of politics. Clare says the book ‘Bears the imprint of the conversations I’ve had with Robbie Thorpe over the panel every week on Fire First for the last 10 years.’ It draws on what Clare has learned through her activist work since 1998 alongside Gary Foley and, since 2002, Robbie Thorpe in particular. Clare says that while she was reading academic postcolonial theory for her PhD, she often thought, ‘Yeah, I know this, Robbie already said it.’
The book is based on Clare’s PhD, which was guided by Gary Foley, Marjorie Thorpe and Tony Birch. She rewrote the PhD to make it shorter and snappier. Foley wrote the book’s Foreword.
