In this book, the nomenclature, nature, ideology, scope and applicability of 'post colonialism' are interrogated in their many aspects and from a wide variety of approaches.

These essays were first presented at an international conference organized in 1994 by the Indian Association for Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies with, and at, the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla.

The first ten essays address several theoretical and general issues relating to post-colonialism while the following ten essays examine post-colonialism with specific reference to Indian texts and contexts. Among the issues discussed are dominance, resistance, writing back', nation, history, migrancy, diaspora, language, location, gender and nativism.
