This is an anthology of primary texts in the field of post-colonial theory, informed by contemporary thinking about the subject, and offers a wide-ranging introduction to anglophone post-colonial writings. The texts are considered "primary" in the sense that they are written by "creative writers". The editors have endeavoured to strike a balance between acknowledged "classic" texts, and works that represent characteristic aspects of post-colonial literature. The book consists of a considerable body of work by major post-colonial writers, and also acts as a source book of central post-colonial themes and theories.

John Thieme, Professor of New Literatures in English, University of Hull.Review:
"There is much to praise in the results of this ambition: theselections included sketch the wide range of issues and literatures that have been examined under the critical and/or historical rubrics of postcoloniality, while a short but useful introduction acknowledges the controversies attendant upon defining this body of study."--Research in African Literatures
