Shelves: theory, postcolonial
It is a good summary of all issues that postcolonial literature deals with. There are many references to various scholars dealing with particular issues of postcolonialism and there are also many examples of postcolonial literature. It is a short but all-embracing introduction into postcolonialism as a literary discipline.
