Summary
  • "Through close readings of works by writers C.L.R. James, Salman Rushdie, Ama Ata Aidoo, Michelle Cliff, and Hanif Kureischi, Using the Master's Tools examines instances of textual resistance elaborated within imperial/metropolitan epistemologies and ideologies. In her analysis, Anuradha Neddham focuses especially on each writer's historical location, personal and political affiliations, presumed audiences, and position on gender as integral contextual determinants of the strategies of textual resistance each deploys."--Jacket
