- We can order this
Opposing the orthodoxies of establishment post colonialism, this work posits acts of resistance and subversion by people of colour as central to the unfolding dialogue with Western hegemony. It questions the various cliches that stereotype "third world" cultures. The testimonies and signifying practices of Rigoberta Menchu, C.L.R. James, various "minority" writers in the United States, and intellectuals from Africa, Latin America, and Asia are counterposed against the dogmas of contingency, borderland nomadism, panethnicity, and the ideology of identity politics and transcultural postmodern pastiche. Reappropriating ideas from Gramsci, Bakhtin, Althusser, Freire, and others in the radical democratic tradition, San Juan deploys them to recover the memory of national liberation struggles (Fanon, Cabral, Che Guevara) in the face of the march of globalized capitalism.
