"A brilliant refusal of its established terms of engagement, this book marks a major advance in thinkin g through and beyond postcolonial theory."
"Peter Hallward's book is perhaps the key theoretico-political intervention of the last decade - one of those few where one cannot but exclaim: 'Finally the word we were all secretly waiting for!' One can only hope that his critique of postcolonial theory will set in motion the much-delayed liberation of teh academic Left from the postmodern jargon which has long dominated cultural studies. If ever a book was a weapon, this is it!"
"This monumental study transforms the terms within which critical understanding of postcolonial culture has been conducted. Lucid, difficult, highly original and sometimes contentious, Hallward's stimulating book provides a new bench-mark for all future debate in this field."
"Bringing a real philosophical intelligence to bear on the field, this extremely important book is a singular intervention in every sense of the word."
