Overview

The work of Edward Said has had a transformative effect on the way we think about identity and postcolonialism. In this book of essays, the contributors, informed by Said's wide-ranging scholarship, engage with post-coloniality, literature and philosophy.

 

This is the first collection to expand and elucidate the work of Said and it matches his critical skill and insight over an interdisciplinary field of enquiry. Cultural Readings of Imperialism looks at: Josep Conrad, Frantz Fanon, George Elliot, Christopher Columbus, English ethnicity, Indian natioanlism, and women of empire.

 

Keith Ansell-Pearson is Director of Graduate Research at the University of Warwick. He is the author of several books on Nietzsche and Deleuze, including Deleuze and Philosophy (1997).

Benita Perry is the author of Delusions and Discoveries: Studies on India in the British Imagination (1972) and Conrad and Imperialism (1983).

Judith Squires is joint editor of Cultural Remix: Theories of Politics and the Popular (L&W 1993), and was, until 1997, editor of new formations. She lectures in the politics department at the University of Bristol.
