The volumereflects one of those rare occasions when the convention ofessays-by-diverse-hands succeeds in maintaining a genuinely openand plural perspective on the issues it confronts.' ChristopherPrendergast

'Since most of the contributors of this volume areinternationally recognized figures representing a variety ofdisciplines, this book will likely be of interest to a wide rangeof literary and cultural theorists.' David B. Downing,Literature and History
