The Postcolonial and the Global

Front Cover
Revathi Krishnaswamy, John Charles Hawley
U of Minnesota Press - Political Science - 329 pages
This interdisciplinary work brings the humanities and social sciences into dialogue by examining issues such as globalized capital, discourses of antiterrorism, and identity politics. Essayists from the fields of postcolonial studies and globalization theory address the ethical and pragmatic ramifications of opposing interpretations of these issues and, for the first time, seek common ground.
