Geographies of Postcolonialism
- Jane M Jacobs, Institute of Geography, University of Edinburgh
Geographies of Post-Colonialism introduces the principal themes and theories relating to postcolonialism. Written from a geographical perspective, the text includes extended explanations of the cultural and material aspects of the subject. Exploring post-colonialism through the geographies of imagination, knowledge and power, the text is split into three comprehensive sections:
- Colonialisms discusses Western representations of the 'Other' and the relationship between this and the European self-image.
- Neo-colonialisms discusses the continuing legacies of colonial ways of knowing through an examination of global culture, tourism and popular culture.
- Post-colonialisms discusses the core arguments about post-colonialism and culture with a focus on 'hybridity'.
Comprehensive and accessible, illustrated with learning features throughout, Geographies of Post-Colonialism will be the key resource for students in human geography and development studies.
