Subaltern Studies and the Postcolonial (Mapping)

Subaltern Studies and the Postcolonial (Mapping) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inspired by Antonio Gramsci’s writings on the history of subaltern classes, the authors in Mapping Subaltern Studies and the Postcolonial sought to contest the elite histories of Indian nationalists by adopting the paradigm of ‘history from below’. Later on, the project shifted from its social history origins by drawing upon an eclectic group of thinkers that included Edward Said, Roland Barthes, Michel Foucault, and Jacques Derrida. This book provides a comprehensive balance sheet of the project and its developments, including Ranajit Guha’s original subaltern studies manifesto, Partha Chatterjee, Dipesh Chakrabarty and Gayatri Spivak.

Synopsis:

Part of Verso’s classic Mapping series that collects the most important writings on key topics in a changing world.
