The Encyclopedia of Postcolonial Studies brings together the most wide-ranging and up-to-date scholarship ever assembled on the colonial, postcolonial and neo-colonial condition, covering the period from 1492 to the present.

Key Features:

  • Comprises nearly 400 authoritative yet accessible entries on canonical writers, key texts, genres, literary debates, colonized regions, and related terminology.
  • Explores examples from Columbus to China; writers from Las Casas to Gayatri Spivak; and topics of emerging significance, such as environmentalism, electronic mass media, and the transnational social justice movement.
  • Written by an international team of leading scholars and rising stars in the field.
  • Moves on from the emphasis on Europe’s control of the colonial process, by focusing on how local culture shapes the form of the modern colonial.
  • Creates a state-of-the-art resource for students and scholars across numerous disciplines, including literature, cultural studies, political science, sociology, and history – available online and as a three-volume print set.
