Editorial Reviews

"This volume offers an impressive line-up of scholars, who tackle the complex intersection between Deleuze's philosophy and postcolonial literature head on and with a laudable thoroughness. The strength of these essays lies in the quality of the scholarship behind them; the authors all engage fully with the difficult philosophical concepts that both Deleuze and postcolonial theory presents. At the same time the pieces are logical, well written and clearly argued." - Eva Aldea, Visiting Tutor, Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK
