Editorial Reviews


Professor Salhi offers a collection of work on Francophone issues that is monumental in breadth and scope. The work sets the tone for Francophone Studies in the twenty-first century by offering new insights into the history and the concepts of space and geopolitics, as they relate to notions of cultural identity, language, alienation, and ideologies of Otherness throughout the Francophone world. (Valérie Orlando, Illinois Wesleyan University)

...Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures is an excellent resource for faculty or graduate students new to the discipline as well as for specialists. Instructors preparing a coruse on francophone literatures and cultures will find a wealth of material in its panoramic view. (L'esprit Createur)

This collection of essays offers a current but lasting contribution to the field of francophone studies. . . university libraries should consider the hardback version essential for their collections. (International Journal Of Francophone Studies)

Recommendeddddd (CHOICE)

Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures is focused and accessible to advanced students and their teachers who wish to go beyond the French literary canon and a valuable reference to any Africanist. The essays display historical depth and theoretical finesse, thus providing a starting point for the eamination of the cultural differences and commonalities that comprise the Francophone world today. In a word, this volume has the ability to trigger a dialogue between Francophone and Anglophone scholars of postcolonialism and to further Africanists understanding of Postcolonial Africa and the diaspora. (H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online)

We teachers and scholars in "Francophonie" need books like this one that re-examine the terms, the history, and the cultures of the French-speaking world. This volume promises to be not only international, but transnational in its reach and purpose. I see this book as a great resource for the classroom. (Marjorie Salvodon, Suffolk University)

Kamal Salhi's timely collection of essays, which is part of an excellent new series, arrives at a moment when debates on the relationship between Francophone Studies and postcolonial theory are increasingly preoccupying scholars in this area. (Modern Language Review)
