Críticas:

Bernards's meticulous conceptualization of `Nanyang' as a novel theoretical idiom makes a salient contribution to the critical vocabulary of postcolonialism. Correcting the field's geographical favouritism, Writing the South Seas provides a bracing account of the sinophone presence in Southeast Asia and prompts new reflections on the debatable positioning of China in postcolonial studies. -- Cheow-Thia Chan Bernards' book is a successful rewriting of the contours of South East Asian Sinophone literature and identity, which shines a deserving postcolonial light onto its emergent national cultures. . . . Highlighting a space that frequently challenges definition, it deserves attention from postcolonial, Southeast Asian and Chinese specialists alike. -- Zhou Hau Liew * Postcolonial Studies * Brian Bernards' enjoyable and illuminating book successfully diversifies the way we think about national literatures as well as about Sinophone literature as essentially a diaspora phenomenon. . . . This book will prove an eye-opening read, not only for scholars and enthusiasts of Sinophone and southeast Asian literatures, but for linguists and literary scholars everywhere. -- Astrid Moller-Olsen * New Books Asia * Bernards's meticulous conceptualization of `Nanyang' as a novel theoretical idiom makes a salient contribution to the critical vocabulary of postcolonialism.

Reseña del editor:

Postcolonial literature about the South Seas, or Nanyang, examines the history of Chinese migration, localization, and interethnic exchange in Southeast Asia, where Sinophone settler cultures evolved independently by adapting to their "New World" and mingling with native cultures. Writing the South Seas explains why Nanyang encounters, neglected by most literary histories, should be considered crucial to the national literatures of China and Southeast Asia.
