Summary
  • A Historical Companion to Postcolonial Literatures provides an integrated and authoritative body of information about the political, cultural and economic contexts of postcolonial literatures that have their provenance in the major European Empires of Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain as well as places like Latin America and the Philippines. The Companion is comprehensive in its geographical scope, extending from South America and the Caribbean to Africa, the Middle East and Asia. It also accommodates the literatures and histories of regions where Europe merges into Asia, as in the cases of Turkey and Russia, and includes essays on the Jewish Diaspora and the 'clash of civilisations'
  • Written by recognised scholars in the fields of postcolonial studies, the entries cover major events, ideas, movements, and figures in postcolonial histories. They range across the entire period from European overseas exploration, settlement and colonisation to decolonisation, and highlight the relevance of colonial histories to the cultural, social, political and literary formations of contemporary postcolonial societies and nations. Each entry provides a succinct account of an event or topic, as well as suggestions for further reading in literary works and histories
