Editorial Reviews

"Jenni Ramone's Postcolonial Theories is among the most accessible and engaging introductions to this important field now available, as well as the only one to pay due attention to the variety of new directions postcolonial scholars are taking. It vindicates theory: not as an end in itself but as an aid to critical and even political practice."--Robert Spencer, University of Manchester, UK "Clearly organized, dealing with many of the important concepts in postcolonial theory, and providing students with a clear sense of the evolution and complexity of the field."--Shailja Sharma, DePaul University
