Politics and Post-colonial Theory by Pal Ahluwalia

Book Description

This groundbreaking book makes sense of the complexities and dynamics of post-colonial politics, illustrating how post-colonial theory has marginalised a huge part of its constituency, namely Africa. Politics and Post-Colonial Theory traces how African identity has been constituted and reconstituted by examining issues such as: * negritude * the rise of nationalism * decolonisation. The book also questions how helpful post-colonial analysis can be in understanding the complexities which define institutions including: * the nation-state * civil society * human rights * citizenship. Politics and Post-colonial Theory bravely breaks down disciplinary boundaries. Its radical vision will be essential reading for all those engaged in Politics, post-colonial studies and African studies.

Reconciliation and Pedagogy by Pal Ahluwalia Reconciliation and Pedagogy, Paperback (November 2013)

In this volume, educational academics and practitioners across a range of cultural and political contexts examine the links between reconciliation and critical pedagogy, putting forward the notion that reconciliation projects should be regarded as public pedagogical interventions, with much to offer to wider theories of learning.

Violence and Non-violence in Africa by Pal Ahluwalia Violence and Non-violence in Africa, Paperback (February 2011)

'Violence and Non-Violence in Africa' historicizes and breaks down the pervasive, almost ritualistic, association of Africa with forms of everyday as well as extreme violence, the latter bordering on and including genocide.

Out of Africa by Pal Ahluwalia Out of Africa, Paperback (March 2010)

Making a convincing and controversial case that post-structuralism has colonial and postcolonial roots, this title features a wide-ranging discussion, ranging across authors as different as Foucault, Derrida, Fanon, Althusser, Cixous, Bourdieu and Lyotard, that enables the reader to make connections that have remained unnoticed or been neglected.

Edward Said by Pal Ahluwalia Edward Said, Paperback (October 2008)

Looking at the context and the impact of Edward Said's scholarship and journalism, this book examines Said's key ideas, including the significance of 'worldliness', 'amateurism', 'secular criticism', 'affiliation' and 'contrapuntal reading'; the place of text and critic in 'the world'; and, knowledge, power and the construction of the 'Other'.
