Editorial Reviews

Review

"Postmodernism would remain Eurocentric without a counteracting postcoloniality--without the subaltern rationality that Mignolo sees emerging at the border of modernity/coloniality."--Barry Allen, Common Knowledge

From the Inside Flap

"Walter Mignolo, one of America's most eminent postcolonialists, presents a challenging new paradigm for understanding the realities of a planetary 'coloniality of power,' and the limits of area studies in the United States. Local History/Global Designs is one of the most important books in the historical humanities to have emerged since the end of the Cold War University. This is vintage Mignolo: packed with insights, breadth, and intellectual zeal."--José David Saldívar, University of California, Berkeley

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
