Editorial Reviews

"This is a fine and timely book that contributes with new perspectives to the current concern in postcolonial and cultural studies of broadening the scope of hybridity theory. AcheraIou's book expands our awareness of the history of hybridity and hybridity as a product of historical processes, which altogether refines the notion of hybridity as a theoretical concept. The book is very well-written and communicates difficult material in a lucid and inviting manner. It offers new, compelling and productive ideas to theorists and students in postcolonial and globalisation studies." -- Sten Pultz Moslund, Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Southern Denmark
