Mignolo, Sundhya Pahuja, R. Radhakrishnan, Ileana Rodríguez, E. San Juan, Saskia Sassen, Ella Shohat, Leslie Sklair, Robert Stam, Madina Tlostanova, Harish Trivedi.

A vital, engaging and dynamic work that, taken as a whole, avoids reductive thinking about complex and evolving affairs, and does justice to the often hotly-contested dialogues that have, of late, characterised research in the fields of postcolonial studies and globalization theory.

Postcolonial Text

This interdisciplinary work brings the humanities and social sciences into dialogue by examining issues such as globalized capital, discourses of antiterrorism, and identity politics. Essayists from the fields of postcolonial studies and globalization theory address the ethical and pragmatic ramifications of opposing interpretations of these issues and, for the first time, seek common ground.
