This book is an introductory text to postcolonial studies, with an emphasis on contemporary debates. The first chapter, "The Nervous Condition of Postcolonial Studies," clearly outlines the complexities of the field of postcolonial studies. It emphasises the importance of moving away from critical analysis from inside the academy, and instead turning to popular culture for strategies and movements in this discourse.
