Summary
"This book discusses the psychological topography of Korean, Nigerian, and Indian people by exploring the counter-colonial discourse through the study of works by three writers - Yom Sang-Sop, Chinua Achebe and Salman Rushdie - who "strike back" at powerful colonial discourses. Soonsik Kim successfully brings out the Third World "voice" against the colonial legacy of the West and gives readers a taste of being "the Other." This book marks a significant transition in the critical attention of Third World discourse from mere projection to subjective viewpoint."--Jacket
