...an interesting and useful overview of the way the Robinson Crusoe story has been reimagined and rewritten since the 18th century...the book is readable and carefully written...Recommended.' Choice'This book was begging to be written. There are few books as well known and widely re-written as Robinson Crusoe and this analysis of the transcultural re-writings of a colonial classic is an important and groundbreaking enterprise opening up a rich field of post-colonial writing.'Bill Ashcroft, University of New South Wales
