Increasing sophistication on the issue of hegemony has not been matched by more developed understandings of resistance or counterhegemony. In an unusual, interdisciplinary collaboration between historians and social scientists working on Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Latin America, this volume aims to provide the concept of counterhegemony with theoretical content, while bringing to light important but little known or misunderstood episodes of resistance in the colonial and postcolonial world. Writing against Eurocentrism, the contributors explore different forms of counterhegemonic rearticulation.
