Format: Paperback
This is a very exciting book. It has an excellent introduction which locates postcolonial theory. The intersection between politics and post-colonial theory is the first such application and as Ashcroft suggests on the back cover it is truly ground breaking. The book traces the issues of identity and politics and highlights the major issues which are of concern to African studies, negritude, decolonisation, the state, civil society , human rights and globalisation. Perhaps the most interesting chapter is the chapter on citizenship. I would highly recomend this book. It is not only useful to undergraduates but will be provocative for the more advanced reader.
