Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0791426408, Paperback)

Order and Partialities explores the complex and problematic relations among postcolonial literatures and theories, the people who teach them at the university level, and the institutions in which they are taught. Each essay traces a path through these relations; yet each also comments on the fundamental paradox and contradiction within which these relations operate: that they must engage with the powerful, labyrinthine apparatus of Western cultural hegemony-a set of systematic, interpretative procedures corresponding to, and in service of, a regime of ideological expectations and its institutional representatives-in order to disengage themselves from its operations. There is no way to teach these relations without entering, oneself, into the entanglements of postcolonial power.
