Summary
The postcolonial state, like its European predecessor of the 18th and 19th centuries, deploys heritage institutions and instruments, museums, courts of law, and universities to empower itself with unity, longevity, exaltation of value, origin, and destiny. This book reveals the febrile pitch at which heritage is staked by examining situations in South Africa, India, and the US, to capture its perfect embodiment of the struggle to seize culture and society at moments of profound social change
