   schema:reviewBody ""Ngugi argues that 'Culture is the product of a people's history. But it also reflects that history, and embodies a whole set of values by which a people view themselves and their place in time and space.'" "Developments in the last four hundred years have led to a situation where world cultures have been dominated by a handful of western nations. The West came to see itself as the centre of the universe. Cultural power, just as much as political and economic power, was controlled at the centre." "In this collection Ngugi is concerned with moving the centre in two senses - between nations and within nations - in order to contribute to the freeing of world cultures from the restrictive walls of nationalism, class, race and gender." "Between nations the need is to move the centre from its assumed location in the West to a multiplicity of spheres in all the cultures of the world. Within nations the move should be away from all minority class establishments to the real creative centre among working people in conditions of racial, religious and gender equality." "Ngugi believes that moving the centre in these ways is a crucial step in the struggle for true cultural freedoms throughout the world, in order to correct the imbalances of the last four hundred years of Eurocentric domination."--BOOK JACKET." ;
