Summary
"In this book, Harrison sheds new light on what is actually at issue in postcolonial criticism. Focusing on a series of major works, from Conrad's Heart of Darkness to Djebar's autobiography, the book draws on and elucidates a wide range of theoretical and critical work. To students unfamiliar with postcolonial criticism it offers a way into the field via key issues and specific examples rather than abstract theoretical summary, while for those already working in the area it raises crucial questions about the very basis of postcolonial critical practice." "Postcolonial Criticism is a major intervention in the field of postcolonial studies which reexamines critical suppositions about reading and representation, and which calls into question established notions about the relations between literature and colonialism."--Jacket
