About this product
- DescriptionPostcolonizing the International brings post-colonialism directly into engagement with contemporary international studies, while at the same time reflecting back on the discourse, ting certain blindspots and shortcomings in critique. Reversing the established agenda, it begins with the position of n-European societies and the legacies of colonialism. Two companion essays on kwledge formations about the international and the changing nature of the political are followed by challenging reinterpretations of contemporary global politics focusing on race, skewed development, cultural difference, and everyday life. Individual chapters speak to the significance of consumption and commodification, the need for redirecting Western development stategies, initiatives of the Tibetan cabinet in exile, and sexuality as metaphor.
