From the Back Cover:

Bringing together the most wide-ranging and up-to-date scholarship ever assembled on the colonial, postcolonial, and neocolonial condition, The Encyclopedia of Postcolonial Studies comprises nearly 400 authoritative, accessible entries on canonical writers, key texts, genres, literary debates, colonized regions, and related terminology, covering the period from 1492 to the present.

This state-of-the-art resource for students and scholars spans a broad range of disciplines, including literature, cultural studies, political science, sociology, and history.

The Wiley Blackwell Encyclopedia of Literature is a comprehensive, scholarly, authoritative, and critical overview of literature and theory comprising individual titles covering key literary genres, periods, and subdisciplines. Available both in print and online, this groundbreaking resource provides students, teachers, and researchers with cutting-edge scholarship in literature and literary studies.
