Book Cover
A Companion to Postcolonial Studies

This volume examines the tumultuous changes that have ocurred and are still occurring in the aftermath of European colonization of the globe since 1942.

Ranging widely over the major themes, regions, theories, and practices of postcolonial study today, the volume presents original essays by the leading proponents of postcolonial study in the Americas, Europe, India, Africa, and East and West Asia. Their contributions provide clear introductions to the major social and political movements underlying colonization and decolonization, accessible histories of the literature and culture in the separate regions affected by European colonization, and introductory essays on the major thinkers and intellectual schools that have informed strategies of national liberation worldwide.

This volume is unique in providing an incisive summary of the long history and theory of modern European colonization in local detail and global scale. It will be a necessary reference tool for years to come.
