The Oxford Handbook of Postcolonial Studies provides a comprehensive overview of the latest scholarship in postcolonial studies, while also considering possible future developments in the field. Original chapters written by a worldwide team of contritbuors are organised into fivecross-referenced sections, "The Imperial Past", "The Colonial Present", "Theory and Practice", "Across the Disciplines", and "Across the World". The chapters offer both country-specific and comparative approaches to current issues, offering a wide range of new and interesting perspectives.
