It includes substantial additions: A new preface and epilogue reposition postcolonial studies within evolving intellectual contexts and take stock of important critical developments.

Gandhi examines recent alliances with critical race theory and Africanist postcolonialism, considers challenges from postsecular and postcritical perspectives, and takes into account the ontological, environmental, affective, and ethical turns in the changed landscape of critical theory. She describes what is enduring in postcolonial thinking—as a critical perspective within the academy and as an attitude to the world that extends beyond the discipline of postcolonial studies.

She argues that it is marked not by a politics of identity so much as its breaching. Drawing our attention to its focus on the indefinite, unfinished, and peripatetic, Gandhi allows us to see postcolonialism as a contemporary but also successor of anarchism. It is a shimmering and indispensable work by a formidable thinker that reforms all that it describes. Leela Gandhi tells a vivid story about the enormous stakes involved in thinking about forms of colonial violence and suffering that haunt contemporary society.

The lessons of Postcolonial Theory are bold and urgent ones for students to learn and for scholars to confront today. It is focused, informative, thought-provoking, enjoyable, and student-friendly.

Postcolonial Theory

Postcolonial Theory : A critical introduction. Leela Gandhi. Postcolonial Theory is a ground-breaking critical introduction to the burgeoning field of postcolonial studies. Leela Gandhi is the first to clearly map out this field in terms of its wider philosophical and intellectual context, drawing important connections between postcolonial theory and poststructuralism, postmodernism, marxism and feminism. She assesses the contribution of major theorists such as Edward Said, Gayatri Spivak and Homi Bhabha, and also points to postcolonialism's relationship to earlier thinkers such as Frantz Fanon and Mahatma Gandhi.

Lagji on Gandhi, 'Postcolonial Theory: A Critical Introduction: Second Edition'

Research in African Literatures New York: Columbia UP, ISBN paper. The lengthy recitation of the historical origins of humanism in the early sections seems unwarranted and redundant, given that most readers will come to the book equipped with at least a basic awareness and knowledge of the fundamental issues at stake. But beyond this shortcoming, Leela Gandhi provides helpful definitions of key terms along with a genealogy of postcolonial theory, mapping its trajectory across disciplinary boundaries, and carefully, methodically outlining the terrain traversed in achieving its position alongside some of the most influential theoretical apparatuses of the late twentieth century—poststructuralism, postmodernism, feminism, and Marxism. While Gandhi remains faithful to the book's stated objective of providing a critical introduction to postcolonial theory, the book is considerably more rewarding and challenging than its stated structural parameters may initially imply. Gandhi's critique allows for the exploration of important issues and questions relating to nationalism, pedagogy, and cultural studies.
