Editorial Reviews


"In this remarkably broad work, Lazarus calls for Markist scholars to engage postcolonial studies on its own grounds and argues for the recovery of a non-Eurocentric but nevertheless Marxist framework in place of the culturalist conceptions and idealist epistemologies that currently dominate the field with their `postism', `newism', and `endism'." Choice

"[Lazarus] has helped to clear the ground and to orient thinking toward those critical possiblities genuinely immanent to a really existing globalization." Diaspora

Book Description

This wide-ranging study contains individual chapers on modernity, globalization and the 'West', nationalism and decolonization, cricket and popular consciousness in the English-speaking Caribbean, and African pop music. Neil Lazarus offers extended discussions of the work of such influential writers, critics and activists as Frantz Fanon, C. L. R. James, Edward Said, Gayatri Spivak, Samir Amin, Raymond Williams, Paul Gilroy and Partha Chatterjee. This book is a politically focused, materialist intervention into postcolonial and cultural studies, and constitutes a major reappraisal of the debates on politics and culture in these fields.
