Overview

In his new book, Bill Ashcroft gives us a revolutionary view of the ways in which post-colonial societies have responded to colonial control. The most comprehensive analysis of major features of post-colonial studies ever compiled, Post-Colonial Transformation:

* demonstrates how widespread the strategy of transformation has been

* investigates political and literary resistance

* examines the nature of post-colonial societies' engagement with imperial language, history, allegory, and place

* offers radical new perspectives in post-colonial theory in principles of habitation and horizonality.

Post-Colonial Transformation breaks new theoretical ground while demonstrating the relevance of a wide range of theoretical practices, and extending the exploration of topics fundamentally important to the field of post-colonial studies.
