Savage Constructions challenges the popular Western assumption that violence is an essential quality of darker-skinned populations, arguing that Western imperialist projects are largely responsible for the current violences that "rebound" in victim societies of the post-colonial world. "Rebounding violence" expresses victim abjection and overly aggressive "identity work" in survivors of repressive regimes after long-term exposure to denigrating myths that cast the victims as morally wanting and deserving of the abuse they suffered.
