"Many of the chapters in this collection are a fascinating "tour de force" that makes the volume a must item in the libraries of not only those interested in postcolonial studies, discourses, theories, and paradigms, but also those interested in power, production of knowledge, the postcolonial state, marginality, and feminist struggles as well as literary and cultural criticism, modernity and postmodern paradigms. . . . [The contributors'] multidisciplinary and critical, as well as self-reflexive, approach to postcolonial studies is timely and theoretically challenging and stimulating."
