"Presentations of Postcolonialism: New Orientations is a collection of essays which sets out to open the possible limits of the postcolonialism as a literary/social discourse. Postcolonialism, moving beyond the paradigm of so-called critical practice, has come to represent a complex web of meaning produced through multiple strategies of reading and interpreting it. The present collection of critical essays represents myriad, interesting and insightful explorations on textuality and inter-texuality of the postcolonial discourse, its meaning in recent critical practice. The contributors have explored the subject referring to different genres in connection with their traditional and radical interpretation into consideration." (jacket)
