Companion to Postcolonial Studies by Henry Schwarz

Book Description

This volume examines the tumultuous changes that have occurred and are still occurring in the aftermath of European colonization of the globe from 1492 to 1947. This book ranges widely over the major themes, regions, theories and practices of post colonial study. It presents original essays by the leading proponents of post colonial study in the Americas, Europe, India, Africa, East and West Asia. It provides clear introductions to the major social and political movements underlying colonization and decolonization, accessible histories of the literature and culture, and separate regions affected by European colonization. It features introductory essays on the major thinkers and intellectual schools that have informed strategies of national liberation worldwide. It offers an incisive summary of the long history and theory of modern European colonization in local detail and post colonial scale.
