The essays gathered here must speak for themselves. Nonetheless, in their different ways, they address a common core of questions arising from the global nature of problems concerning history, ideology and identity. They do so by employing those strategies of literary investigation that have emerged over the last four decades, in particular by deconstructing texts to expose their internal contradictions and patterns of opposition, which are so important in determining their ideological standpoint. This is not to say that the essays themselves wish to persuade readers to an ideological position; nor does it mean that they are innocent and neutral readings of the texts they discuss. But it is hoped that this volume will reflect the spirit of tolerance, the recognition of and respect for difference in a changing and globalised world."" Peter Preston, University of Nottingham
