Colonialism/Postcolonialism by Ania Loomba

Colonialism/Postcolonialism (The New Critical Idiom) (Paperback)
by Ania Loomba

# Paperback: 263 pages
# Publisher: Routledge; 2 edition (October 19, 2005)

'Colonialism/Postcolonialism' moves adroitly between the general and the particular, the conceptual and the contextual, the local and the global, and between texts and material processes. Distrustful of established and self-perpetuating assumptions, foci and canonical texts which threaten to fossilize postcolonial studies as a discipline, Loomba's magisterial study raises many crucial issues pertaining to social structure and identity; engaging with different modes of theory and social explanation in the process. There is no doubt that this book remains the best general introduction to the field.

"a future was lost yesterday
as easily and irretrievably
as a tennis ball at twilight"
