This volume offers an unusual, interdisciplinary collaboration of scholars working on the major regions of the global South. The authors probe important episodes of resistance in the colony and postcolony for the light they shed on the vexed notion of counterhegemony, enriching our notion of resistance and pointing to new directions for research.
