Bhabha's theory is very abstract and difficult to understand. David Huddart however summarizes his theories (the stereotype, mimicry, hybridity, the uncanny, the nation, cultural rights) in a very intelligible way.

I've got a better grasp on Bhabha, but there's still some basic things I still just don't get.
