About this book

With the backdrop of new global powers, this volume interrogates the state of writing in English. Strongly interdisciplinary, it challenges the prevailing orthodoxy of postcolonial literary theory.

It is a model for going 'beyond the postcolonial'.' - Professor Robert Eaglestone, Royal Holloway, University of London
