"Gregory Castle has assembled a rich collection of key texts which will succeed in introducing postcolonialism to newcomers (above all students) while at the same time provide a useful store of critical materials for those further into the field (above all lecturers, researchers and scholars). This is a well-gathered collection, representing significant writing over the last 20 or so years, and demonstrating excellent research and a sure knowledge of the field in its choice and arrangement of material. This is a work with a first-rate set of ideas and references. The hardback is an excellent addition to the library shelf and the paperback a must for personal reading, particularly for serious students of the subject." Reference Reviews
