9780826400468: Postcolonialism: A Guide for the Perplexed (Guides for the Perplexed)

Postcolonialism as a critical approach and pedagogic practice has informed literary and cultural studies since the late 1980s. The term is heavily loaded and has come to mean a wide, and often bewildering, variety of approaches, methods, politics and ideas. Beginning with the historical origins of postcolonial thought in the writings of Gandhi, Cesaire and Fanon, this guide moves on to Edward Said's articulation into a critical approach and finally to postcolonialism's multiple forms in contemporary critical thinking, including theorists such as Bhabha, Spivak, Arif Dirlik and Aijaz Ahmed. Written in jargon-free language and illustrated with examples from literary and cultural texts, this book addresses the many concerns, forms and 'specializations' of postcolonialism, including gender and sexuality studies, the nations and nationalism, space and place, history and politics. It explains the key ideas, concepts and approaches in what is arguably the most influential and politically edged critical approach in literary and cultural theory today.

Review:

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 "Pramod Nayar's survey of postcolonialism covers substantialterrain with consummate ease. It moves from the theoretical andliteraryengagements with colonialism's cultures, the rise of postcolonialthought in anti-colonial struggles through the major literary themes of space,nationalism, sexuality and gender, to newer postcolonial formations in thecosmopolitan and globalizedage we live in. Nayar's close attention totropes, literary figurations, the politics of postcolonial theory and thecontinued relevance of postcolonial approaches to terrorism, cybercultures andglobalization - all carefully illustrated and evidenced from textsfromAfrica, Asia, South American and other formerly colonized nations-makes this book at once an indispensable introduction to the field and acritical evaluationof the literary-political discipline of "Postcolonial Studies." The book will be of interestto students in History, Literary Studies, Cultural Studies and Theory acrossthe world where questions about race, culture, colonialism and identitycontinue to productively 'trouble' pedagogy and reading practices." (Professor SW Perera, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka)

Descripción Continuum Publishing Corporation, United States, 2010. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. New Rev ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a guide to the often complex area of postcolonial theory and literature from its historical origins to contemporary critical thinking and issues. Postcolonialism as a critical approach and pedagogic practice has informed literary and cultural studies since the late 1980s. The term is heavily loaded and has come to mean a wide, and often bewildering, variety of approaches, methods, politics and ideas. Beginning with the historical origins of postcolonial thought in the writings of Gandhi, Cesaire and Fanon, this guide moves on to Edward Said s articulation into a critical approach and finally to postcolonialism s multiple forms in contemporary critical thinking, including theorists such as Bhabha, Spivak, Arif Dirlik and Aijaz Ahmed.

It explains the key ideas, concepts and approaches in what is arguably the most influential and politically edged critical approach in literary and cultural theory today. Continuum s Guides for the Perplexed are clear, concise and accessible introductions to thinkers, writers and subjects that students and readers can find especially challenging - or indeed downright bewildering. Concentrating specifically on what it is that makes the subject difficult to grasp, these books explain and explore key themes and ideas, guiding the reader towards a thorough understanding of demanding material.
