Colonialist literature is an exploration and a representation of a world at the boundaries of 'civilization,' a world that has not (yet) been domesticated by European signification or codified in detail by its ideology.
Accordingly, I would argue that colonialist literature is divisible into two broad categories: the 'imaginary' and the 'symbolic.' [Note the Lacanian language.] The emotive as well as the cognitive intentionalities of the 'imaginary' text are structured by objectification and aggression.
The colonialist's military superiority ensures a complete projection of his self on the Other: exercising his assumed superiority, he destroys without any significant qualms the effectiveness of indigenous economic, social, political, legal, and moral systems and imposes his own versions of these structures of the Other.

 COLONIAL DISCOURSE SINCE CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Colonialist discourse would not have been the effective weapon of domination it was, however, if it had consisted solely of the mere tautological assertion of power over others.
Colonialist discourse was successful, then, to the extent that the colonized came to accept their subservience as being in the natural order of things and were even ready to embrace the master's cause and to defend the latter's right to rule over them.
Colonialist discourse today also assumes the guise of the literature of economic development in which the old Western dichotomy of barbarism and civilization has been replaced by the contrasting concepts of development and underdevelopment.

 Between Iraq’s colonialist and Islamist quagmire the "third way" is hard but possible
The military assault on Iraq, its occupation and the attempts at ‘economic-political reconstruction’ are part of a wholly colonialist project at the dawn of the 21st century.
The occupation of Iraq was one of the first practical steps that the United States government took to alter the structure of the political command of global capitalism aiming at the building a global American empire [8].
In such conditions unless the resistance against economic occupation (neo-construction) is combined with a struggle for survival, its spread among the masses of the destitute faces difficulties.

Beneath all the vitriolic partisan disagreements about American foreign policy, then, there is a sort of colonialist consensus, which is why American troops are in Afghanistan and Iraq (a Republican president's colonialism), Bosnia and Kosovo (a Democratic president's colonialism), and perhaps soon Liberia, too (a Republican president's colonialism that is pleasing to Democrats).
It is a sign of the depth of America's covert colonialist consensus that part of even Howard Dean -- eager to intervene in Liberia -- agrees.

 GupShup - The colonialist plan to subjugate Pakistan's agriculture   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The colonialists have targeted ownership of Pakistan's agriculture because Pakistan is already one of the foremost agricultural powers and is fully capable of becoming even more powerful.
Colonialist institutions such as the World Trade Organisation, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank have therefore insisted on corporate farming so that Pakistan exposes its agriculture to ownership by foreign companies.
The colonialists are using corporate farming to exploit the immense agricultural wealth that Allah (swt) has bestowed upon Pakistan and to prevent Muslims from challenging the colonialist economic hegemony.
