  • Major work from one of the world's most distinguished literary and cultural theorists
  • Intervenes in the fraught issues generated by ideas of Asia
  • Featured essays include "Foucault and Najibullah," "Moving Devi," "Responsibility," and "Megacity"
  • Other chapters focus on, among other things, Human Rights, and the turbulent present of the Caucasus
  • Essential reading for anyone interested in postcolonialism, and devotees of Spivak's writing
