About the Book :

"Barker, Hulme and Iversen have a genius for fostering genuinely interdisciplinary exchange ... The essays in this collection demonstrate with absolute clarity that debates about colonialism ans neo-colonialism are foundational to the whole project of cultural studies and that ‘postcolonial’ questions are one that the traditional disciplines in the ‘Humanities’ urgently need to address.’'
- Professor Stephen Slemon, University of Alberta

This truly global volume ranges geographically from Barzil to India and South Africa, from the Andes to the caribbean and the USA. This range is matched by a breadth of historical perspectives. the contributors focus on theoretical matters, though their references cover diverse topics. Central to the whole volume is a critique of the very idea of the "postcolonial" itself.
