Against the Postcolonial is at once a study of five writers from lands formerly or currently ruled by France (Algeria, Cambodia, Guiana, Madagascar, and Mali) and an interrogation of the relevance of postcolonial theory, criticism and studies to these writers. The authors are necessarily placed against the background of postcolonial studies, but since they have radically different backgrounds, histories, and careers, Serrano argues against the relevance of a homogenizing critical practice most interested in replicating itself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Critiques of postcolonial theory are not in short supply, but Serrano's approach is a useful one in that it brings this discussion into the field of Francophone Studies...Serrano offers carefully researched, thoughtful analyses and a valuable antidote to reductive critical practice. * L'esprit Createur *
Serrano's book is an engaging and challenging critical work that calls for a reevaluation of Postcolonial and Francophone Studies, as well as a revision of the relationship between the different constituencies of the French Empire. -- Elisabeth Mudimbe-Boyi, Stanford University
