Editorial Reviews

Barbara Harlow
'Radical, intrepid, compendious, A Historical Companion to Postcolonial Literatures, goes far toward restoring 'postcolonialism' to its historical premises by resituating that imperial project in its much changed and still controversial cartographies. It is Marlow's map of the 'heart of darkness' drastically redrawn: what was once the 'vast amount of red,' a 'deuce of a lot of blue,' a 'little green,' those 'smears of orange,' and the 'purple patch,' is here become a dense kaleidoscope that will of necessity rechart the itinerary of students and critical travellers across and around 'continental Europe and its empires.'
Walter Mignolo
'The Companion is unique in that it provides a wealth of analysis and information about all European continental powers and their colonies and presents the entire assembly in a wonderful mis-en-scène. It is a 'true' companion that invites trans-cultural readings of trans-cultural literatures.'
