Description

This work proposes a radical view of the influence that colonised societies have had on their former colonisers. In this work, Bill Ashcroft extends the arguments posed in "The Empire Writes Back" to investigate the transformative effects of post-colonial resistance and the continuing relevance of colonial struggle. The book demonstrates the remarkable capacity for change and adaptation emanating from post-colonial cultures both in everyday life and in the intellectual spheres of literature, history and philosophy. The transformations of post-colonial literary study have not been limited to a simple rewriting of the canon but have also affected the ways in which all literature can be read and have let to a more profound understanding of the network of cultural practices that influence creative writing.
