The Oxford Handbook of Postcolonial Studies, Hardback Book

The Oxford Handbook of Postcolonial Studies Hardback

Edited by Graham Huggan

Part of the Oxford Handbooks series


The Oxford Handbook of Postcolonial Studies provides a comprehensive overview of the latest scholarship in postcolonial studies, while also considering possible future developments in the field. Original chapters written by a worldwide team of contritbuors are organised into five cross-referenced sections, 'The Imperial Past', 'The Colonial Present', 'Theory and Practice', 'Across the Disciplines', and 'Across the World'.

The chapters offer bothcountry-specific and comparative approaches to current issues, offering a wide range of new and interesting perspectives.

The Handbook reflects the increasingly multidisciplinary nature of postcolonial studies and reiterates its continuing relevance to the study of both the colonial past-in its multiple manifestations-and the contemporary globalized world.

Taken together, these essays, the dialogues they pursue, and the editorial comments that surround them constitute nothing less than a blueprint for the future of a much-contested but intellectually vibrant and politically engaged field.
