Product description

From the Back Cover

In her first full treatment of postcolonial studies, a field that the helped define, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, one of the world's foremost literary theorists, attempts to describe a responsible role for the postcolonial critic within the postcolonial enclave. A Critique of Postcolonial Reason tracks the figure of the "native informant" through various cultural practices -- philosophy, history, literature -- to suggest that it emerges as the metropolitan hybrid. The book addresses feminists, philosophers, critics, and interventionist intellectuals as they unite and divide. It ranges from Kant's analytic of the sublime to child labor in Bangladesh. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author
