Summary
"Decolonization Agonistics in Postcolonial Fiction challenges the prevailing western-originated concepts of postcoloniality and postcolonial cultural/literary theory on the grounds that behind their fashionable emancipatory rhetoric, they actually submerge Third World anti-colonialist writing under Western strategic calculations for the post-cold war era. In place of the homogenizing approach which lumps together all the world's literature outside the male-authored texts of the major European powers, it introduces important distinctions between the literature of Europe's temporarily disadvantaged insiders, the imperial-outpost literatures of the European diaspora in the Americas and Australasia, and the decolonization literatures of third-world peoples and ethnic minorities which constitute the West's third-world underbellies."--Jacket
