About the Author

Robbie Shilliam is Senior Lecturer in International Relations at Queen Mary, University of London, UK.


Shilliam writes with the precision of a historian, chronicling key players' activities and historical events ... Through detailed, historicized descriptions and narratives of Maori activism, and Shilliam's own insightful analysis connecting Black Power with Maori mana motuhake in Black peoples' and the Pacific's shared struggles against colonialism, the reader finds a nuanced history and accounts of a universal struggle for self-determination that has brought Maori placement forward in New Zealand's society today. * Journal of New Zealand and Pacific Studies *
Black Pacific aims to decolonize the subaltern not only from the imperial center but also other subalterns. In this way, Shilliam identifies the logical next step after anti-colonial politics: that is, decolonial science. * L.H.M. Ling, Associate Professor, Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy, The New School, USA *
The Black Pacific is a life changing work of love. Shilliam makes a brilliant contribution to scholarship while still appealing to a more general audience. Constructing an amazing archive of texts and story telling of Maori and Pasifika peoples and practices, he articulates a decolonial science as an approach of repairing colonial wounds. By affirming the knowledge and living traditions of Maori and Pasifika, Shilliam shows their embeddedness in particular locales and their simultaneous connection with each other and proffering of general principles of engagement without laying claim to abstracted universals. If you haven't read The Black Pacific yet, drop everything, and read it now! * Anna M. Agathangelou, Associate Professor of Political Science at York University, Canada *
This is a creative and important contribution to the study of decolonial world politics and a solid exploration of the spiritual hinterlands where Black Power meets Maori struggles. The poetic dimension of the narrative contributes to an energizing reading experience. * Teivo Teivainen, Professor of World Politics, University of Helsinki, Finland *
The Black Pacific will change the way we think of colonial science and resistance to its historical projects. This exquisite book is decolonial thought at its finest. An exceptional achievement. * Mustapha Kamal Pasha, Chair in International Politics, Aberystwyth University, UK *
