Mandela’s Dark Years

A Political Theory of Dreaming

User Avatar
Sharon Sliwinski

Inspired by one of Nelson Mandela’s recurring nightmares, Mandela’s Dark Years offers a political reading of dream-life. Sharon Sliwinski guides the reader through the psychology of apartheid, recasting dreaming as a vital form of resistance to political violence, away from a rational binary of thinking.

This short, provocative study blends political theory with clinical psychoanalysis, opening up a new space to consider the politics of reverie.
