Create a 7 pages page paper that discusses postcolonial theorists concerns and marxists thinking on international relations. Postcolonial theories study political knowledge, through understanding the functional relations of political and social power that ensures colonialism and neocolonialism. This enhances the aspects of representations of the imperial regime. for instance cultural, social, and political representations. of the colonizer, and the colonized populace. As an approach to contemporary history, postcolonialism influences the cultural perception modes. Postcolonial theories analyze the human relations within colonial nations and the people exploited through colonial rule (Chirot, 2006). Critical theorists who analyze postcolonialism, explain the ideologies of neocolonialism through humanities examples. for instance, philosophy and Marxists theory, history, political science, sociology religion, feminism, and linguistics. These humanities provide the anti-conquest narrative which illustrates the stories of subjugation by colonialists (Fisher 2011).
Marxist international relations theory entails the ideas which dispute the realist or liberal perception of state cooperation and conflict. It instead focuses on material or economic aspects. These theories strive to reveal how economics is more significant than the other concerns. hence, it focuses more on class aspects (Fanon, 2003). Marxist theories are very influential in the social and political issues of South-Eastern Asia, Latin America, Africa, and some areas of Europe like Italy, France, and Greece. However, the theory receives inadequate attention in the USA due to insignificant influence in mainstream politics, even for democratic socialists’ political parties. Realists together with the liberals, criticize the Marxist theories due to consequentiality and also ideological reasons. Post positivists do not agree with the significance of class conflicts for Marxists. as the key human life aspect, and the approach to understanding human behavior and history (Gregory, 2009).
