Description - Post-Colonial Transformation by Bill Ashcroft
This work offers an alternative view of the ways in which post-colonial societies have responded to colonial control. This comprehensive analysis of the major features of post-colonial studies: 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; and offers new perspectives in post-colonial theory in principles of habitation and horizonality. This study aims to break new theoretical ground whilst 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.
