Colonialism is a form of sociopolitical organization in which the colonizing power not only exploits the land, labor, and natural resources of the colonized but also attempts to eradicate their cultures, histories, and independent identities. As such, it is inherently genocidal. This chapter provides an overview of classic or external colonialism, internal colonialism, and settler colonialism, developing a framework that will be applied throughout the rest of the text.
