The Routledge Companion to Pakistani Anglophone Writing forms a theoretical, comprehensive and critically astute overview of the history and future of Pakistani Literature in English. Dealing with key issues for global society today, from terrorism, religious extremism, fundamentalism, corruption and intolerance to matters of love, hate, loss, belongingness and identity conflicts, this Companion brings together over thirty essays by leading and emerging scholars, and presents: the transformations and continuities in Pakistani Anglophone writing since its inauguration in 1947 to today; contestations and controversies that have not only informed creative writing but also subverted certain stereotypes in favour of a dynamic representation of Pakistani Muslim experiences; a case for a Pakistani canon through a critical perspective on how different writers and their works have, at different times, both consciously and unconsciously, helped to realize and extend a uniquely Pakistani idiom. Providing a comprehensive yet manageable introduction to cross-cultural relations and to historical, regional, local and global contexts that are essential to reading Pakistani Anglophone literature, The Routledge Companion to Pakistani Anglophone Writing is key reading for researchers and academics in Pakistani Anglophone literature, history and culture, as well as other disciplines such as terror studies, post-9/11 literature, gender studies, postcolonial studies, feminist studies, human rights, diaspora studies, space and mobility studies, religion and contemporary South Asian literatures and cultures.
