Additional Information

Postcolonialism has become one of the most exciting, popular and stimulating fields of literary and cultural studies in recent years. Yet the variety of approaches, the range of debate and the critical vocabularies often used may make it challenging for new students to establish a firm foothold in this area.

Beginning Postcolonialism is a vital resource for those taking undergraduate courses in postcolonial studies for the first time and has become an established international best-seller in the field. In this fully revised and updated second edition, John McLeod introduces the major areas of concern in a clear, accessible and organised fashion. He provides an overview of the emergence of postcolonialism as a discipline and closely examines its many established critical approaches while also exploring important recent initiatives in the field. In particular, Beginning Postcolonialism demonstrates how many key postcolonial ideas and concepts can be effectively applied when reading texts and enables students to develop their own independent thinking about the possibilities and pitfalls of postcolonial critique.

This book was on the reading list for university so I had to buy it. I found that it was a well written introduction to the subject and in its clear down to earth writing lived up to the title Beginning Postcolonialism. The author John McLeod should be congratulated on writing an introduction that explains professional jargon without bias towards particular theories in the field. Perhaps the most useful part of the book is the suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter for those that wish to look more closely into certain aspects of postcolonial theory.
This books is amazing for university students and students of life alike. It's very digestible reading for academic literature and quite honesty a page turner. If your in school and questioning whether to rent or buy definitely buy!
Good intro book for my literary theory education.
But this was enough for me. Those wanting more opinions can follow the Many resources in end of chapter bibliographies, even with author recommendations.

From this book, I feel there are Many opinions on what to politically correctly entitle the "Post colonialism" field.
