SUMMARY

As a subject, post-colonial studies stands at the intersection of debates about race, colonialism, gender, politics and language. In the language of post-colonial studies, some words are new, whereas others are familiar and are charged with new significance.Explaining what post-colonialism actually is, where it is encountered and why it is crucial in forging new cultural identities, this clearly presented text provides essential information in understanding the issues that characterise the area.With over 100 entries, the book includes definitions of:* diaspora* Fanonism* hybridity* Manicheanism* miscegenation* negritude* orientalism* settler-colony* trans-culturation.With suggestions for further reading at the end of each entry, a comprehensive glossary with extensive cross-referencing, and a bibliography of essential writings in post-colonial studies in an easy-to-use A-Z format, Post-Colonial Studies: The Key Concepts is an invaluable resource for anyone studying or interested in post-colonialism.Ashcroft, Bill is the author of 'Post-Colonial Studies The Key Concepts', published 2001 under ISBN 9780415243605 and ISBN 0415243602.
