Grounds of Comparison by Pheng Cheah
Book DescriptionBenedict Anderson, professor at Cornell and specialist in Southeast Asian studies, is best known for his book Imagined Communities: Reflections on the Origin and Spread of Nationalism (1991). It is no understatement to say that this is one of the most influential books of the last twenty years. Widely read both by social scientists and humanists, it has become an unavoidable document. For people in the humanities, Anderson is particularly interesting because he explores the rise of nationalism in connection with the rise of the novel.

In this volume, Pheng Cheah provides a rethink of post-colonial theory's discussion of the nation and nationalism. He suggests that the difficulties of achieving freedom in the postcolonial world indicate the need to reconceptualize freedom in terms of the figure of the spectre.
