About this title:

Synopsis: In good clean condition. Some very light underlining in pencil in one chapter.

Review: Represents an incisive critique of the current state of affairs in postcolonial studies in the Western academy. Her revisionary reading of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness - a reading that turns critical focus away from Kurtz and his Africa back towards the capitalist metropole - is brilliant both in terms of its historical depth and textual acuity. Similarly compelling is Chrisman's revision of Anne McClintock's now classic reading of H. Rider Haggard's King Solomon's Mines as a gendered allegory of colonial power. --Apollo O. Amoko, University of Florida, Research in African Literatures

Eminently readable....this is a timely collection of essays, bringing together Laura Chrisman's unique contribution to postcolonial studies in a way that makes her writing easily accessible to scholars and students woring in the field. --Tony Simoes da Silva, School of English, University of Exeter
