Summary
"This collection offers an in-depth investigation of the work produced with regard to a particular political and national location of postcoloniality, offering a new direction for the subject. Focusing on the presentation of postcolonial theory within an Indian context, this Critical Reader includes sections on visual cultures, translating cultural traditions, the ethical text, and global/cosmopolitan worlds. Each section collects work from contemporary critics on these issues, and is prefaced with a short introduction highlighting the part they play in the national and international postcolonial debate"--Provided by publisher
