This important collection of essays assesses the harvest of the post-colonial project. It spans an impressive range, from stimulating , sceptical analysis by distinguished novelists Nayantara Sahgal and Dan Jacobson on the forces that underlie much post-colonial literature and Yasmine Gooneratne on issues of gender, to original essays by eminent critics. The scholarly essays examine crucial general topics: Ken Goodwin on writing as a reflection of reactions to the colonial encounter Zohreh T. Sullivan and Satendra Nandan on the discourse and experience of migrancy; Gerhard Stilz on transformations of tropical landscape; Bruce Bennett on regionalism in an Australian context and Bernth Lindfors on the actual teaching situation.There are outstanding writers and specific novels: James Harrison on Salman Rushdie Manzoorul Islam on J.M.Coetzee; Itala Vivan on Nuruddin Farah and Susan Spearey on V.S. Naipaul. The concluding pieces by Frank Schulze-Engler and Victor J. Ramraj open vistas for advancement.In sum, this book with its international team of contributors offers the kind of periodical assessment which post-colonial literature needs, and is accessible as well as valuable to the student, general reader and scholar alike.
