The aim of this chapter is to discuss the nature of anti-colonial movements in the context of various historical phases. This is carried out in order to unearth the roots, vectors of mobilisation, ideological fundaments and methods of action of such movements. It also serves to analyse political, rhetorical and sociological continuities and ruptures as well as to expose ambiguities in relations between anti-colonial movements, state-building processes and the outside world.
