Exploring postcolonialism through the geographies of imagination, knowledge, and power, the text is split into three comprehensive sections:
- Colonialisms discusses Western representations of the "Other" and the relationship between this and the European self image
- Neo-colonialisms discusses the continuing legacies of colonial ways of knowing through an examination of global culture, tourism, and popular culture
- Postcolonialisms discusses the core arguments about postcolonialism and culture with a focus on "hybridity"
Comprehensive and accessible, illustrated with learning features throughout, Geographies of Postcolonialism is the key resource for students in geography and development.
