"Stucki ... delivers a much-welcome addition to a growing field of decolonial thought and feminist critique of Portuguese- and Spanish-speaking histories and cultures. Violence and Gender in Africa's Iberian Colonies offers an enlightening retelling of a history often remembered in its most brutal and exuberant forms-the fight for independence and self-determination in Africa, the regimes of Franco and Salazar, and the bloody and prolonged wars fought by the Portuguese fascist state to retain their colonial territories at all costs." (Daniel da Silva, Journal of Lusophone Studies, Vol. 5 (1), 2020)

"Andreas Stucki's book Violence and Gender in Africa's Iberian Colonies is a valuable and innovative addition to an established corpus of scholarship on the gendered nature of colonialism, as well as to the small but rapidly expanding historiography on the Iberian colonies in Africa. With accessible and lively prose, as well as striking details about the lives of individual women affected by colonization, the book is immensely readable." (Joanna Allan, Journal of Spanish Cultural Studies, November 12, 2020)

"This is a fundamental volume for those who want to delve further into a comparative history of late colonialism, with gender as its core axis." (José Pedro Monteiro, e-journal of Portuguese History, Vol. 17 (2), December, 2019)
