Past the Last Post: Theorizing Post-colonialism and Post-modernism
This book is an examination of two major literary movements which are often misleadingly conflated. The post-colonial differs from the post-modern in its provenance in former British colonies and dominions, in its historical reach extending from the time of Imperial dominance down to the contemporary, in its critical commitment to context, and in its development of an independent body of theory.
