The Colonizer and the Colonized

By Albert Memmi.
A great read, not exactly uplifting, or light bedtime reading but hugely
insightful. Written from the perspective of a Tunisian Jew, who was one of
the colonised but whose people identified more with the coloniser, Memmi
shows how colonisation damages both the coloniser and the colonised.
