Overview

This book provides a rhetorical analysis of some key legal situations that illustrate some of the problematics of colonial and neocolonial situations. A series of case studies from several continents is used to illustrate how colonial rules and regulations have been "co-produced" by elites and subalterns.

These key colonial histories continue to influence many of the economic, political, social, and legal relationships that exist between "developed" and "underdeveloped" countries.
