It explores a number of issues, including the question of representing the other, strategies adopted to resist such representations, and the questions of identity, nationalism, colonialism, feminism, subaltern studies and the English language within the context of Empire. Providing a critique of the paradoxes and conflicts which appear in Spivak's work, the book offers a new approach to postcolonial studies."--Publisher's website."@en
