Post-colonial Transformation by Bill Ashcroft
Book DescriptionIn his new book, Bill Ashcroft gives us a revolutionary view of the ways in which post-colonial societies have responded to colonial control. The most comprehensive analysis of major features of post-colonial studies ever compiled, Post-Colonial Transformation: * demonstrates how widespread the strategy of transformation has been * investigates political and literary resistance * examines the nature of post-colonial societies' engagement with imperial language, history, allegory, and place * offers radical new perspectives in post-colonial theory in principles of habitation and horizonality. Post-Colonial Transformation breaks new theoretical ground while demonstrating the relevance of a wide range of theoretical practices, and extending the exploration of topics fundamentally important to the field of post-colonial studies.
