From the Back Cover:

Scholars from a wide array of disciplines describe and debate postcolonialism as it applies to America in this authoritative and timely collection. Investigating topics such as law and public policy, immigration and tourism, narratives and discourses, race relations, and virtual communities, Postcolonial America clarifies and challenges prevailing conceptualizations of postcolonialism and accepted understandings of American culture.

Advancing multiple, even conflicted visions of postcolonial America, this important volume interrogates postcolonial theory and traces the emergence and significance of postcolonial practices and precepts in the United States. Contributors discuss how the unique status of the United States as the colony that became a superpower has shaped its sense of itself. They assess the global networks of inequality that have displaced neocolonial systems of conquest, exploitation, and occupation. They also examine how individuals and groups use music, the Internet, and other media to reconfigure, reinvent, and resist postcoloniality in American culture.

Candidly facing the inherent contradictions of "the American experience", this collection demonstrates the patterns, connections, and histories characteristic of postcoloniality in America and initiates important discussions about how these conditions might be changed.

Review:

"This splendid volume will prove an indispensable text for scholars in postcolonial studies and the new American studies." -- Donald E. Pease Jr., Avalon Professor of the Humanities, Dartmouth College "This collection of innovative and penetrating essays adds a new and much-needed dimension to public debate over a wide range of issues, including race, immigration, 'cultural defense,' 'coming-of-age' narratives, globalization, and public culture... A valuable contribution to American studies." -- Dilip Gaonkar, editor of Alter/Native Modernities: Millennial Quartet
