Occidentalism by Couze Venn

Book Description

This important book critically addresses the 'becoming West' of Europe and investigates the 'becoming Modern' of the world. Drawing on the work of Derrida, Foucault, Levinas, Lyotard, Merleau-Ponty and Ricoeur, the book proposes that the question of postmodernity is inseparable from that of post-coloniality. The argument fully conveys the sense that modernity is in crisis. It maps out a new genealogy of the birth of the modern and suggests a new way of grounding the idea of an emancipation of being. Postcolonialism has emerged as a central topic in contemporary social science and cultural studies. This book informs readers as to the central strands of the debate and introduces a host of new ideas which will be a rich fund for other writers and researchers.

Postcolonial Challenge by Couze Venn Postcolonial Challenge, Paperback (January 2006)

What is postcolonial studies? What are its achievements, strengths and weaknesses? This book deals with one of the most important issues with special emphasis on neo-liberalism within world poverty and the 'third world'.
